Issue 73 February 2017



Welcome to the wonderful world of Bustle & Sew and Issue 73 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 isn’t your average news stand offering, 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. We don’t just limit ourselves to sewing though this is of course is very much at the heart of every issue. We love to celebrate the simple (and totally wonderful) things about life here in the English countryside well enjoying creating with needle and thread, indeed sewing is very much at the heart of every issue. So inside you’ll discover a collection of six new Bustle & Sew projects as well as features, articles, a round of online goodies, baking – and even a poetry corner.

February is the month for romance, and we look beyond red roses to find out more about the secret language of flowers as well as celebrating all kinds of love with our “All you need is love” hoop.  We chat two three very talented creatives from the worlds of stitching and illustration, enjoy some lovely citrus-based recipes in Rosie’s recipe corner and find out about Pancake Day traditions as well as the usual six new Bustle & Sew projects between the covers.

There’s lots more inside too – and don’t forget, you are free to sell items you personally have made from Bustle & Sew patterns. All the templates are 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!
