Issue 94 November 2018



As we journey towards Christmas, as well as seasonal patterns, we have included some projects that
we hope will make very special gifts for your loved ones this year. As well as stitching, we’ve been busy tasting Rosie’s recipes for sweets and chocolates this month, which again, when prettily packaged will make great gift ideas. We also chat to two talented makers and find out more about the real Mrs Tiggywinkle too.

We’re also very excited to be able to let you know that Bustle & Sew will once again be at the Etsy Made Local Fair in Bristol next month. We’ll keep you updated online, but meanwhile, please pencil in the day – that’s Sunday 2 December 2018 – hope to see you there.

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.
