Great British Sewing Bee

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

I am. Love it. Once a week just isn't enough!

Edited to add:
I wish they would give them other challenges than clothes!

Me too I would love to be able to choose from the haberdashery... Would take all the time just choosing though and can't make things under time pressure. I agree about making other items, my sister gave me the book at xmas, so inspiring.

I'm not sure why they all struggled with the waistcoat. Yes it's a tricky sew, but READ THE INSTRUCTIONS PEOPLE!!!!! Loved the elephant, and think Ryan could be one to watch.

Didn't realise this was on again! I love it. Although personally I think ToothFairy should be on it!
