Britney Spears takes sewing lessons on tour

Britney Spears is expanding her creative talents by taking sewing lessons from her wardrobe team on tour.

The Toxic hitmaker is on the European leg of her Femme Fatale trek, and she staged two shows in Sweden last week (ends16Oct11).

Spears used her time backstage at one of the gigs to hone her stitching skills, and posted a picture of herself at work on her Twitter.com page.

In an accompanying post, she writes, "Sewing lesson in Sweden from the wardrobe team! Sweetest ladies."
