You may recall last year about this time I mentioned that I had a project in a book. The book is the brainchild of two of my favorite sewing buddies: Caroline from SewCanShe and Sarah from Blue Susan Makes. We met a few years back at Quilt Market and have been friends ever since.
Isn’t it time we sewed something for ourselves?
Isn’t it time to do a little sewing for ourselves. That what Just For You is all about, taking a little time to sew something for ourselves. As one of the book’s contributors, I get to participate in the Sewlebrity Sewalong at SewCanShe.com
For my project I chose to make the Bella Pouch. I think that it is the perfect little runaround bag. Just the right size to hold your wallet, phone, keys, and sunglasses. I can drop it into a larger bag or just grab and go.
Add in a few necessary items and you’re out the door in no time, flat. That’s what I mean when I say it is the perfect runaround bag.
I love how the pattern includes a pocket, so you can toss in loose change or small items like a lipstick.
Just For You
Just For You is broken down into twelve months of projects with two projects each month. Lots of simple-to-sew projects that won’t take too much time but are still fun to sew. Choose your favorite fabrics and have some fun! (affiliate)

Personally, I’ve found that taking 20 minutes a day to do a little selfish sewing is the perfect cure for almost anything. I am more relaxed and feel like I’ve accomplished something. I know the same will be true for you if you take just a few minutes every day to step away from life and sew a stitch or two.
