A mini sewing success....and a not so photogenic Kenners

Lately, I have been using my evenings to finish/do a few little projects that I know I won't get around to doing for a LONG time (or ever) once we move in 3 short months.  
Plus, I want to get rid of most all our stuff so we have as little to move as possible, so any fabric and crafty scraps I have lying around must be used or must go!
The other night, I turned an old sweater into a dress for Kenners and turned some old, colorful socks into stockings for her dress. 
This morning I was pleasantly surprised to see that the end product actually fit Kenadie and--so long as you don't look too closely--doesn't look all that bad! 
Seeing as I have butchered the majority of my sewing projects in the past year (and all of them have been pretty "easy"), the prospect of maybe having a sliver of sewing abilities in my pinky finger is kind of exciting!
I whipped out the camera and after the first snapshot, Kenadie refused to smile for--let alone look at--the camera. 
Shortest, most-boring photo shoot ever.
Not looking forward to family picture day (assuming I ever schedule one).

Now, who has any EASY (and fast) sewing project ideas to help me use up the rest of my scrap fabrics??

It turned out soooo cute! I think I'll be trying that soon.
I also thought you could sew some cute puppets with fun fabrics and colorful hair. You could also make a little purse for Oakley, or a present for Krystal. Are you going to the shower on Sat? as always my fall back for fabric is pillow covers. I have made some really funny ones, but I think ive got it down. Plus I learned how to make ruffles, so there are ruffly pillow covers in my future.

Grandpa thinks she looks like a vanilla/orange sherbert popsicle. Yummy!
