Crafting Once Again!

Yay!!! I've been able to use my sewing machine again!  I made this cute dress for Audrey Wednesday morning from a white tee shirt and some fabric left over from an apron that I made.  It's a little loose on her waist, so I need to figure out a way to add some elastic to the waist.  I free handed the lady bug applique for the shirt!

Next, I made this awesome "quilt." It took much longer than I expected, but it was definitely worth the time.  I found the tutorial on the site "Made."  She has such neat stuff!  The only problem with this quilt, is my satin blanket binding.  I highly respect those of you who have mastered this art!  It probably didn't help that I rounded the corners.  I am pretty good at making square corners, but this "easing" around the edges was definitely a challenge.  Hmmm, now which one of you will receive this quilt.  (The ruffly side will look neater over time.  Each time it is washed and dried, it will fray more.)
