"Fill My Little World"
"Fill My Little World (reissue)"

"Sewn" is the first proper single by British rock group The Feeling, following the 7" only single "Fill My Little World" (which would later become a full single release itself). It was released in the UK on 27 February 2006 and entered the UK Singles Chart at #7 on 5 March 2006. It has sold around 90,000 copies in the UK.

"Sewn" gained the band a lot of support and went on to become one of the most successful songs of the year on British radio, with much thanks to Chris Moyles of BBC Radio 1, who championed the band. The single was recorded in sibling band members Kevin and Ciaran Jeremiah's dad's shed, known as "Kevin and Ciaran's mum and dad's outbuilding". Four Stops and Home, The Feeling's debut release for American audiences, incorporates "Sewn" as its leading track as well as its single artwork.

The song is featured as one of the tracks in the video game FIFA 07 and was featured on the NBC television series Medium, in the episode "The Boy Next Door", which aired on 7 March 2007, and also on the CW television series One Tree Hill, in the episode "Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers", which aired on 14 February 2007.

In August 2006, on the USA's iTunes Store, "Sewn" was a single of the week. It also appears on the 2006 compilation album The Acoustic Album, released by Virgin Records.
