Have you been watching the Great British Sewing Bee? What do you think of it?
I love that there is sewing on the television and revel in the intricacies of getting the under stitching perfect or managing to put in an invisible zip err…invisibly. I only wish there were more of this sort of geeky detail, I mean we haven’t seen the inside of any of these clothes yet!
Who do you want to win? I’d like it to be Chinelo; I love the way she just draws on the fabric with a bit of chalk and then seems to cut out the most amazing designs.
The big question for me though is, why would any one want to watch it if they didn’t sew? I’ve never watched the Great British Bake Off but I can imagine that even if you don’t bake you can at least drool over the cakes. The clothes made on the GBSB aren’t really that exciting, in fact most of them are really a bit boring. If I wasn’t a sewer already I don’t think I would start as a result of watching this programme.
