Issue 118 November 2020



As we near the end of 2020 I think it’s fairly safe to say that it’s been a year like no other. But amongst all the bad news, I think one of the positives that I will take away from 2020 is the re-emergence of
community spirit amongst us all, a new sense of caring for others and valuing our home and family even more than we ever did. This month’s issue celebrates home and family with our first project – love begins at home and continues with the first of a new series of girls – this one is Alice, with lots of new stitches for you to enjoy as you cosy up on the sofa during these long dark winter evenings. We look ahead to Christmas as well with some new Christmas designs, as well as our baby deer head – perfect for your little one’s bedroom the whole year long.

The Bustle & Sew Magazine is the work of just the two of us – Helen Grimes, 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.
