Just for You -- Crafty Weekends Review & Link Party

This link party is for crafts done by people of all ages!!
Disclosure: C&T Publishing gave me a copy of this book free of charge to review. All opinions in my review are my own and I did not receive any other compensation. As in all my reviews I am providing links for your ease, but receive no compensation.

 Today I get to share a book that is for sewers to spoil themselves!! Just for You by Caroline Fairbanks-Critchefield and Sarah Markos features twenty-four various projects to make for oneself. They range from clothing, bags, and other fun accessories. There are two projects for each month of the year. The projects are a collection of various designers put together to create a book for the sewer to spoil herself.

 I decided to start with the Lace Infinity Scarf by Jessica Christian. Infinity scarves are all the rage and I have bought a few but wanted to know how to make one. I did not find a stretchy lace that I liked so I went with a stretchy knit.

 The weather for tonight is predicting some snow, so I felt I needed a bit of spring today, so I am wearing it.
 I have to say it was easy to make and the instructions were clear. When I first read them they didn't make complete sense to me but once I started I realized what it meant. Now I have to decide what to make for myself next. I am loving this Foxy Smartphone Cozy.

They also have skirts, dresses, bags, aprons and so many other great ideas!! I love all the variety and the patterns are stylish and useful!! Of course Hazel wants me to get back to sewing for her. Oh, well. I guess I will have to make myself something else when she is not looking.
