So very British and so very inspiring.

I just love this show to bits - The Great British Sewing Bee.  I only just started watching it - I had heard about it but assumed it wasn't shown in Australia.  But then one night while channel surfing whammo, there it was. I have to say I'm bummed that I've missed so much of it, but I'm catching up with bits of it here on the BBC site, where you will find their tutorial on making this cute bow tie.

I love that the show, unlike designer-y shows like Project Runway, focuses on regular people and the sewing skills they need for everyday projects.  And I love their challenges that focus on remaking thrift store finds.  Think I might have to have a go on that front.  I haven't altered a thrift store find for myself in a looooong time!
