Sewing Bee Pattern Challenge: Children’s Week

We’re two episodes in and it’s safe to say we’re already hooked to our screens. With an exciting and somewhat challenging first episode last week we were keen to see what the judges would have in store for the contestants in week two. And we were certainly not disappointed!

This week’s pattern challenge saw the nine hopefuls take on the ambitious task of sewing children’s garments. And what a challenge it was! Whoever assumed smaller items would mean less work, was certainly not the case for the Bee‘s this week! So in the spirit of all things child-like, we have lined up our top five kid’s makes we’re sure you’ll enjoy stitching!
