Issue 132 January 2022



Let’s hope that this year is the year we can finally put the pandemic behind us. Meanwhile there’s lots
to enjoy in this month’s edition – pandemic or no pandemic! 2022 brings the Chinese Year of the Tiger –
and I was all up for stitching a majestic and ferocious beast. Unfortunately I’m not very good at these
qualities and my little tiger looks ready to curl up for a long winter’s sleep by the fire! And thinking about
snuggling up (one of my favourite things to do in the colder months), I hope you’ll like the first pattern in
this issue that features not only a mug of cocoa, but some lovely woolly socks too! We chat to Nollaig
Ryan, a very talented maker, enjoy some lovely winter recipes and much more besides in this issue.

The Bustle & Sew Magazine is the work of just one woman, 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.
