Sewing Bee

So hands up who watched last night’s The Great British Sewing Bee? Yep, me as well. Wasn’t it great? I think I spent most of the time drooling over the fabric stash they had, knowing I’ll never have one that extensive.

If it’s inspired you, like it did me, then why not dust off that sewing machine and get started on an A Line skirt. There’s a great tutorial here (found via The Sewing Directory’s website here).

All information from the programme will be on the BBC’s website and includes bios on the contestants and clips from next week’s episode.

The book accompanying the series can be found on amazon, with details of projects shown each week. So if you’re inclined to buy, go ahead.

And if you’re wondering where you might have seen one of the contestants before, her name is Tilly and she blogs here.

If you haven’t had the time to catch up yet, you can watch it here. It really is a good watch, so I suggest you grab a cup of tea and get onto it immediately.
