If you enjoy sewing why not try making your own Lilly*Blossom Bow cushion(pillow) cover using two contrasting fabrics and my easy to follow, fully illustrated PDF sewing guide. This cushion cover has the opening at the front, tied with a bow and shows just a hint of the lining panel underneath. You can adjust how much of the lining shows through by how tight you fasten the bow. There are no difficult zips to insert. The 10 page sewing guide is suitable for anyone who has basic experience of using a sewing machine to stitch straight and zigzag seams and following simple sewing instructions. It is written in clear simple to follow text with lots of close up photographs to help you every step of the way. You will need to make a paper template (pattern pieces) using four rectangular shapes on card or paper. Tip: I use a roll of spare wallpaper or lining paper for my templates as it's long lasting and much less expensive than buying large sheets of card or taping paper together. This design uses two coordinating fabrics, one for the main cover and a contrasting one for the lining panel and ties. Try out different combinations from your fabric collection. Every time you will have a new and orignal cushion cover.
