Selfish sewing isn't really about being selfish in a negative way. It's meant to give you time to sit back, enjoy what you are doing and sew for your own endeavors. Most of us love to make and create. Why else would we do it? But, when you blog, or sell your creations, you get wrapped up in the need to produce product. Or if you always sew for your kids, this is a good time to sew for yourself. Say you are a quilter and have decided you want to make a bag, do it now. Its just a good time. A good time to put your hobby at the front of the queue.
I am desperately trying to finish a rather large knitting project that had to be started over, I am hoping to get at least enough of it done by tomorrow to give a concise review of the pattern.
Until the knitting reveal, here is my 4th day project: The Sarah Ankle Zip leggings from Named Patterns. This pattern goes together really quickly and is true to sizing. Like all patterns, there were a few little tweaks to make them fit me perfectly. Although the pattern makes the calf zone more snug, I like it with the skinny trouser feel.
The unique design feature of this pattern: the seams on the front and back. I top stitched them all using a thread color to match my zippers. Its subtle. I wish I had found more interesting zippers. oh well, next pair.

See, I can even do my standard perch. I do this everywhere. Same with sitting butterfly and criss cross applesauce. I do that in all my chairs. I'm always folded up...
