Let's Start at the Beginning


Hello, Dear Ones! Well, I thought I would start by showing you Babbette, the Bitty Baby I bought from a neighbor. Babbette is going to be Carter's birthday present in March. She came with a bed, swing and a little book.
 These are the clothes Babbette had on when she came into my possession. Cute little simple blue checked dress.
 ...and a cute little bib.
 As I told you earlier, I'm sewing for Babbette so she'll have a nice wardrobe when I give her to Carter. You've already seen some of the crocheted things I've made her and if you're interested in seeing them you can go to my sidebar on the right and click on Midweek With Marion and it will take you to all of my posts for the dolls.

So I thought I would start with the basics and make Babbette some diapers. I had some leftover fabric from some little receiving blankets (do they even call them that now?) and thought that would be perfect. I also made a little bib for her. Not too fancy but it'll do the job. You know how messy these babies can get.
 I found a free pattern on Pinterest and adjusted it just a bit and it seems to fit her well. These diapers are lined with another patterned flannel on the other side just to make them more interesting.
Well, good grief! There she goes taking one of her naps right at the end of my post! The little sweetheart gets tired so easily. I know these are just little simple things but every baby needs some diapers and bibs. I've been having the most fun sewing for Babbette and have some really cute clothes to show you coming up. Hope you'll come back.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Be My Baby

The night we met I knew I needed you so
And if I had the chance I'd never let you go

So won't you, please, be my be my baby
Be my little. baby my one and only baby
Say you'll be my darlin', be my be my baby
Be my baby now, my one and only baby
Wha-oh-oh-oh.
I'll make you happy, baby, just wait and see
For every kiss you give me I'll give you three
Oh, since the day I saw you
I have been waiting for you
You know I will adore you 'til eternity
So won't you, please, be my be my baby
Be my little. baby my one and only baby
Say you'll be my darlin', be my be my baby
Be my baby now, my one and only baby

So come on and, please, be my be my baby
Be my little baby my one and only baby
Say you'll be my darlin', be my be my baby
Be my baby now, my one and only baby
