They are all awesome! The Beatles dress is my favorite.  I'd love to be able to make stuff like this for my little girl, just need to learn how to sew!  Cheesy

These are all really clever -- the Pink Floyd recon with the rainbow fabric in particular -- but I think my favourite is the Beatles dress. It would be lovely just in regular fabric but the Beatles shirt recon gives it an extra lift.

I've been lurking for a couple of weeks.  I saw your amazing pics and had to ask...how do you get such nicely finished edges and top-stitched seams?  Do you use a serger? Can I do that with a sewing machine?  (I'm pretty new to sewing.)

Thanks everyone!! Im working on a sweet E.T. one right now and will post when it's finished Grin
STITCHINTIME: Hi, I use a serger for most of my edges and main constructing, you can do an overedge zig zag with your regular machine, by having one side of the zigzag missing the edge of the fabric. Im pretty basic with my sewing skills...I just try it and if it stays it worked Tongue
