Issue 114 July 2020



At last the lockdown is beginning to lift and we will soon be able to get out and about again – though
things are unlikely to return to normal for a very long time I fear. But nonetheless, there is good news
here at Bustle & Sew HQ – our wedding, postponed from April, is now confirmed to take place in July –
though it will be a very much quieter and smaller affair than originally planned.

Holidays are also set to resume, and whether you’re visiting the beach here in the UK, or heading off to
foreign climes, you might like to try our vintage beach wrap pattern – it’s so easy to make, and great for
enveloping salty children before they begin to shiver!

The Bustle & Sew Magazine is the work of just the two of us – Helen Challenor, the founder of and creative force behind the Bustle & Sew bunny and her daughter Rosie who’s a bit of a whiz in the kitchen! So if you’re expecting a glossy high-street, high-budget publication, stuffed with adverts and promotions, then this probably isn’t the magazine for you. But if you’re looking for quirky, unusual and fun sewing projects, all with Helen’s unique style, and enjoy filling your home with beautiful ideas, then you’re sure to love the Bustle & Sew Magazine.

Don’t forget, you are free to sell items you personally have made from Bustle & Sew patterns. All the templates are included at full size, so there’s no awkward re-sizing – no fiddling around with photocopiers or hanging around at printing shops – you can start creating straight away! I don’t mind if you personally want to make items to sell from my patterns, but you are not licensed to go into mass production.
