They're lovely. It's good to start sewing when the kids are young, because they are much less picky about their clothes and your skills grow with them. By the time your daughter needs a prom dress you should be able to handle it with no problem.
I'd like to know what the tute is that you found for the binding, because I'm stuck at that point on a quilt I just made. I started it on my machine, and it just looked so lame. I really don't want to do it by hand, but I know I'm gonna' hafta'. So if you'd point me in that direction I'd be grateful.
You are amazing! I used to can a lot, but I've lost the drive. When I have bushels of pears sitting in my kitchen waiting to be bottled, just finishing becomes a priority and all the fun flies out the window. So good for you for trying so many different things and learning that you love it!
You did a lovely job! I've done a little swedish weave, which is similar, so I know that it takes a surprising amount of time to do the stitching. I used to think -- hey, the fabric is already there, so it'll be quick to just add some colorful lines. I was so wrong. So kudos to you for not quitting half way through.
