Issue 96 January 2019



And here we are in 2019! Whatever happened to 2018 is what I’d like to know – the year seemed to
simply fly past. January is traditionally the month for settling down by the fire and Rosie’s Recipes this
month features some lovely warming soups as well as some economical ideas for using up any remaining leftovers from the holiday season. This edition focuses on hand embroidery, and as well as our collection of lovely new projects for you to try, no matter your level of expertise, we’ve also looked at some important but not often addressed parts of the process – pressing your work when you’ve finished and the right needles to choose. We also chat to Celeste Johnston, the creative force behind the Lemon Made Shop and much more besides.

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.
