Mellow Yellow

Hello, Dear Ones! Hope you're all doing well. I am doing better each day and thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I've been sewing too. Can't stop!
 I went through my stash of fabrics and found this sweet little yellow stripe and decided it would make a perfect little baby dress for Babbette.
 First of all, I wanted to show you her little head band I made. Isn't it too cute! I added a little felt flower too.
 I must tell you Babette loves her head band and wanted you to see it again. She is a sweet little baby girl. Now if you didn't know, Babbette is a doll I bought from a neighbor and you can see by the scratches on her little head that she was played with a lot. I'm thinking about using a brown marker and trying to cover them up.
 I'll show you the back. I just took a strip of fabric, sewed it with right sides facing, leaving openings on both ends, turned it right side out, pressed it and on each end as you can see above I poked in a little length of elastic and sewed it down. Was that a long sentence or what? :) It fit her little head perfectly.
 Okie dokie, here you can see the floral fabric yoke. I can see it's not even but it's okay because it a doll's dress and I ain't perfect y'all. I know you're all so surprised! :)
I looked through my stash of ribbons and found this one. It has the same pink and green as the floral fabric so I thought it would work. Babbette likes it and I have to keep telling her to quit pulling up her skirt to look at it. Not very ladylike!  
I did feel sorry for Babbette not having any little shoes and her little tootsies were always so cold so I grabbed my crochet hook and yarn and made her a pair of booties. She is happy. I am happy and all is right with the world.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Mellow Yellow

 I'm just mad about Saffron
Saffron's mad about me
I'm just mad about Saffron
She's just mad about me

They call me mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow

I'm just mad about Fourteen
Fourteen's mad about me
I'm just mad about Fourteen
She's just mad about me

Born high forever to fly
Wind velocity nil
Wanna high forever to fly
If you want your cup our fill

(So mellow, he's so yellow)

Electrical banana
Is gonna be a sudden craze
Electrical banana
Is bound to be the very next phase

They call it mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow

Saffron -- yeah
I'm just mad about her
I'm just mad about Saffron
She's just mad about me

  6. Hi Shelia, It has been a while since I have been able to visit your blog. We have had some troubling times Dh had surgery in January to drain fluid from the lining of his lung. He had pneumonia last June and things did not go well. He is a very strong active man and kept going when in a lot of pain. Any way they found he has mesothelioma cancer. We pray the surgeon got all the cancer but he is now having chemo. I am sharing this because I feel God has a plan for him and for me and like you this has brought me closer to our Lord. I went back and read your blogs to catch up. I am so sorry about your accident and pray your healing continues. I can see from your posts you are hooked on making doll clothes. So am I. If you would like I can send you some sites for free patterns. judy j
