I'm a Helensburgh lass, born and bred and have been making and creating since I was a wee.
I graduated from Glasgow School of Art many moons ago with a degree in Embroidered Textile Design but my passion for craft and design goes way beyond embroidery.
I have always loved simplicity, subtlety and elegance; but I also adore pattern and colour and an opportunity to add a wee touch of humour to my work. Silly Lily is a hotchpotch of all of these things presented as a range of handmade gifts, collectables and lifestyle accessories.
From the first silly thoughts that pop into my head, to the label that's pinned on at the very end - every aspect of a Sew Silly Lily design is carefully considered and there is no compromise when it comes to choosing the right materials, yarns or trims. I make every piece as if it were the very first and no two are ever quite the same. This is the nature of things that are handmade and what I love most about making them.
