Issue 63 April 2016



The Bustle & Sew Magazine is the work of just two women – Helen Dickson, the founder of and creative force behind the Bustle & Sew bunny and her daughter Rosie. 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.

The fun just goes on in this month’s issue with our “Pin the Tail on the Bunny” game proving bunnies are not just for Easter but for the whole year round too! This game would be a beautiful addition to a vintage-themed wedding party (just a thought in case you’re planning one this year!). There’s also our latest faux taxidermy head – this one’s a very pretty flamingo – and of course no flamingos whatsoever were harmed in the making of this head! There’s four more sewing patterns too, techniques include free hand embroidery, softie-making, cross stitch and applique. But that’s not all, inside you’ll also discover two lovely new recipes from Debbie, a peep into the work of embroidery charity Fine Cell Work and much more besides.

There’s lots to read between the covers too – and 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!

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.
