Guest Designer: May Blossom Designs


As you may know, every month the Bustle & Sew Magazine contains six of my own original designs.  But that is to say, every month EXCEPT this one as Rosie and I are  very excited to welcome a super-special guest designer, Simone Gooding of May Blossom Designs to the June issue.

Simone is an Australian Designer who lives in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne (one of Rosie’s favourite places she visited on her gap year) with her husband and their four children. She began May Blossom Designs around 10 years ago and offers the cutest softie patterns I think I’ve ever seen created from wool felt, cotton fabrics, linen and yarn.  We were delighted to be able to include Cabbage, her little felt bunny pattern in the current issue …..cabbage

Almost unbearably adorable!  And over at May Blossom Designs you can find even more cute designs for birds, bears, mice and even a squirrel!


As well as her site, you can keep up to date with all the goings-on at May Blossom Designs over on Simone’s Facebook Page, so please do pop over and say “Hello!”

Thanks so much Simone for being our Very Special Guest Contributor this month.

Just want to say good luck with the move, and my thoughts and prayers are with Daisy. I can’t believe it will be July already either Summer is in full force here in Arizona 100 + degrees already! Past the point of what I consider enjoyable that is for sure! Thanks for all you do Helen, I look forward to the magazine every month. Bye for now.


Thanks Carol, wow so hot. We think mid 70s is a lovely summer day here and for me that’s the perfect temperature. So pleased you’re enjoying the magazine, watch out for the July issue next week xx
