New Finished object (not knitting)

Hi everybody. Well it's been crazy around here, especially the weather, and I haven't really been in the mood to knit. For some reason I had an itch to sew something. So I went to Joann's Fabric, which is just across the street (danger) and picked out some cute material to make a couple of project bags. One for me and one for my sister. I started last night after dinner and was done before bedtime. Talk about instant gratification :) one sock in progress. Two socks in progress. Perfect fit.
I started the other one today but haven't finished because we had to go and pick up the other car at the Port of Tacoma today. I also bought a really cute pattern for a sundress for my niece Sadie and my baby Cierra. We are going to California this summer and I want them to both have something handmade with love and I figured that a knit dress might be to hot in July. I am a self taught sewer and the only things I have sewn are quilts, aprons, oven mitts and now these "Punky Pouches" I have never sewn a dress or any other garment for that matter, so if anyone has any tips I would really appreciate it. Here is a picture of Cierra eating her Easter hippo. She is so silly.That's all for now. Thanks for reading and happy crafting
