Issue 125 June 2021



Welcome to the first issue of summer! Outside my window the birds are singing – the skylarks in particular are going a bit mad over the field next to our house – making up for all those cold and rainy
days perhaps when it was far too windy for them to take to the skies. My vegetables are growing away
now, and Daisy is sunning herself in the first warm sunshine of the year, though my guess is that she’ll
soon become far too hot and take her round furry body off to a shady corner of the garden.
This month’s magazine reflects the delights of summer – we have strawberries, roses, flowers and much more besides as well as two very talented makers whom I hope you’ll enjoy meeting.

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.
