My name is Helen Newton and I am based in Cheshire in the UK. Fabric is my passion and I love to create beautiful yet practical items from designer and vintage fabrics. Lilly*Blossom was formed in 2007 to share my enthusiasm for creating wonderful handmade possessions to be proud of.
The Lilly*Blossom collection of sewing and craft guides have been created with beginners in mind. Each one has easy to folllow step-by-step instructions in straight forward language, illustrated with lots of close up photographs.
My aim is to inspire you to create something beautiful and original. No advanced sewing experience is necessary to complete any these projects, just some basic sewing equipment, your favourite fabric and a keenness to have a go! See how easy it is to make a wonderful handmade gift for someone special.
The passport cover takes only a small amount of fabric and lining so it's perfect for using up and recycling your fabric scraps and offcuts. You could also make a matching book cover in the same fabric to make the perfect travel accessory set, a great gift for any keen traveller.
Suitable for beginners, the guide has full sized templates that can be printed on a standard home printer and uses only straight machine stitched seams. All measurements are shown in inches and centimetres so you can make your own templates on thick card if you prefer.
Every step of the project has a close up photograph with text in simple, clear language making it very easy to follow.
