Issue 130 November 2021



So here we all are on the countdown to Christmas – one which hopefully this year will feel a lot more like normal and that we’ll be able to spend with family and friends. We have two Christmas patterns in this month’s edition – including the cutest little deer who I must admit is one of my favourite little softies ever – it took me ages to get the tilt of his head just right.

As well as patterns we have lots more to enjoy – put your feet up and read all about our magnificent horse chestnut trees and the real Mrs Tiggywinkle, feel inspired by our interview with the very talented Kris pf Wild Ona and if you should catch a cold (there seem to be some nasty ones around right now, then we can even suggest some natural remedies for you!)

The Bustle & Sew Magazine is the work of Helen Grimes, the founder of and creative force behind the Bustle & Sew bunny. 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.
