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.
I really love this bottle carrier which can easily be made using your favourite cotton fabric, some wadding and a little sewing experience.
The carrier requires less than 1m of fabric & lining plus a small amount of 2oz wadding.
They are ideal for picnics, going out to dinner and as a gift for someone special. You could make one in a wonderul funky fabric to give with some wine, home-made lemonade or as an alternative two bottles of flavoured olive oil, a perfect treat for any cook!
This sewing guide is 7 pages long and has clear photos showing you every step of the way making it suitable for anyone with basic sewing experience, perfect for beginners and experienced alike.
