We're huge fans of The Great British Sewing Bee – and we're loving that the show is back on our screens with a new series, with Esme Young and Patrick Grant returning as judges.

But if you'd like even more Sewing Bee fun than watching Esme, Patrick and new presenter Kiell Smith-Bynoe each week, then make sure you get your hands on the brand new Sewing Bee book, out now.

The new book, The Great British Sewing Bee: Back to Basics, is designed to accompany sewers on every stage of their journey – from getting to grips with the basics of how to use a sewing machine to creating beautiful bespoke pieces for their wardrobe.

And if you love the garments created on the show and want to try the Sewing Bee patterns, this book is a must buy – it contains paper patterns from this series of the show, as well as all our favourite patterns from over the ten years of Sewing Bee. The projects include a quilted bag, upcycled tablecloth blouse and fleece jacket.

As well as the patterns, the book contains expert advice to get a professional finish on all your sewing projects, as well as sections clearly laying out all the key sewing techniques to learn.

There are patterns in the book for both men and women, so you're guaranteed to find the perfect next sewing project.

News of the exciting new book was shared on the Sewing Bee Instagram page, with a picture of the front cover alongside the caption: "The Great British Sewing Bee: Back To Basics is out now.

"Create your own capsule wardrobe with 25 dressmaking projects including an upycycled tablecloth blouse, unisex fleece jacket and confetti-quilted bag. "

This is such a lovely book and brilliant inspiration to start your sewing journey – it's a must-have gift for any sewing lover or fan of The Great British Sewing Bee.
