Issue 89 June 2018



June brings Midsummer and the longest day of the year. Our gardens are at their best with an abundance of roses, sweet peas, all kinds of herbs and early peas, beans and more, whilst strawberries are eaten with every meal, making the most of the midsummer glut. Rosie’s recipes this month features a host of strawberry recipes, and we have more floral delights for you with articles on roses and lavender too – as well as a little lavender bag to sew.  You’ll also find elephants, a giraffe and even a baby bunny to stitch!

The Bustle & Sew Magazine is the work of just the two of us – Helen Dickson, the founder of and creative force behind the Bustle & Sew bunny and her daughter Rosie who’s a bit of a whiz in the kitchen! 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.
