Sew Silly Lily

I have been sewing for as long as I can remember. My mum used to knit us jumpers, make us clothes, outfits for our dolls, she even upholstered and made all the furniture for my 1st dolls house. It fascinated me that you could turn a bit of yarn or a piece of cloth into something amazing and I wanted to know how to do it all, and I knew from an early age that I wanted it to be more than just a hobby.

I studied Embroidered and Woven Textile Design at Glasgow School of Art and did lots of different things after graduating including millinery, a handmade card business, working for a fabric shop and an office manager for a software house (not sure how that happened!).

At the moment I work part time for a button merchant; a dream job, and I spend the rest of my time being a mum, sewing, embroidering, crocheting, doing a bit of knitting, painting . . .

Additional policies and FAQs
Although I may make the same designs over again there are always slight differences that make each piece unique. This is the nature of things that are hand made and what I love most about the process of making them. There will be instances when I may have to substitute fabrics or yarns but this is always done with careful thought and consideration.

If you like my work but are looking for something different or truly unique please get in touch; I would be delighted to work with you to create something really special.

Patterns aren't quite the same as a finished piece of work, but I hope you will appreciate that there is still many hours of work involved in the designing, choosing of yarns, crocheting and testing before my silly thoughts and ideas are eventually brought to life. Patterns allow me to share my work in a different way, but they're still very personal, and for that reason I would rather they are used to make things for yourself or to be given as gifts. If you are using my patterns to make goods for sale then all I ask is that Sew Silly Lily is given credit for the original design. You may NOT sell, redistribute, alter or publish patterns!
