Issue 50 March 2015



Welcome to Issue 50 of our monthly magazine packed with projects, features, articles and much more besides, in fact it’s a Jolly Good Read! The Bustle & Sew Magazine is not your average newstand read. Rather it’s more of a mini-book full of goodies designed to appeal to everyone who loves to create lovely items for home and family. Inside you’ll discover a collection of six new Bustle & Sew projects as well as features, articles, a round of of online goodies, baking – and even a poetry corner. If you’re expecting a glossy high-street publication, stuffed with adverts and promotions, then this probably isn’t the magazine for you. But if you looking for quirky, unusual and fun sewing projects, enjoy filling your home with beautiful ideas, then you’re sure to love the Bustle & Sew Magazine.

This month we’re anticipating the holidays ahead with our Easter Tree Hoop and delightful Bunny Egg Cosies, as well as two lovely hoops to hand embroider – the perfect gift for Mothering Sunday. And when you’ve stitched your hoop why not frame it with a lovely crochet border courtesy of The Homemakery? We also have the adorable Penelope and Peanut, the cutest little elephant softies you’ve ever seen and much more besides. There’s the last of our series looking at the best of British design-led business, this month featuring Vanessa Arbuthnott, as well as chatting with two very talented small business owners in our Meet the Maker interviews. And that’s not all …there’s even more to enjoy including our popular Baking Corner (anyone for Brownies?) more crafting ideas, and articles too.

There are images of all the Bustle & Sew projects on the front of the cover so you can see at a glance what’s inside. Remember – the Bustle & Sew Magazine is an independent stitching and home magazine that carries no advertising at all – every page is full of content for you to enjoy.
