Great British Sewing Bee

Wasn't The Great British Sewing Bee great last night?  I don't know how the contThe Great British Sewing Bee Bookestants managed to produce such great results under such pressure.  It was amazing to see it made the top Twitter trend in the UK and was still trending this morning.  Hopefully lots of new people are about to discover the joys of sewing.

I thought I would post some useful links for you all for the supplies used in the show and more detailed instructions on how to make the laundry basket which was somewhat glossed over in the show...
