Welcome to Sew Silly Lily; I hope you find something you have to have!

So far I've made the pig with Vannas Choice yarn. These patterns are super cute! The instructions are easy & straight forward. Even being busy with two small kids, I was able to work this up in a couple days. The seller is very accommodating & kind. I can't wait to get the fox & chimp next.

Sew Silly Lily
I have been sewing for as long as I can remember. My mum used to make us clothes, outfits for our dolls, she even upholstered and made all the furniture for my 1st dolls house. Mum is the reason I started sewing 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 . . .
Owner, Maker, Designer
I studied embroidered and woven textile design @ Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 1992. I have done numerous things since, not always textile related, and set up Silly Lily in 2012. About time!

Additional policies and FAQs
There will be instances when I may have to substitute fabrics or yarns but this is always done with careful thought and consideration.
I am more than happy to personalise my Silly 'Lily' Dolls and crocheted pieces if you would prefer other colours to the ones I've used or listed as available.
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!
