A "Wee Care" Doll Dress

No, it is not a dress for a preemie doll. It is a doll dress to benefit a NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) auction. So in a round about way, it is another form of Wee Care. The auction is part of "The Miracle Bash" benefiting Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund of Huntsville Hospital for Women and Children in Huntsville, AL. Visit their sites. It will warm your heart and give you a whole new appreciation for Wee Care.

I chose to smock a bishop using a cotton print of multicolored bubbles. The smocking design was what I call a "seat of your pants" design. I pulled colors, found the center front and started smocking. I didn't have time to get lost in the notebooks of plates or leafing through magazines to find a design. It needed to be in the mail! The neckline is piped in a green tri-check plaid.

The finishing touch is a precious pair of red Mary Jane shoes. Complete with lace trimmed anklets. I didn't take a picture of her undies I sent along in the package.

The heat wave has broken here in the Midwest and it is almost time for the fair. I hope all is well in your world faithful reader.

  8. Hi! I'm Amy George and my husband Chris and I founded the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund in memory of our daughter, Melissa, who passed away after being born 14 weeks early in 2005. Thank you so much for creating this beautiful dress for our silent auction for the Miracle Bash!! This event, along with Swim for Melissa (which happens the day after Miracle Bash), is the major fundraiser for Melissa's Fund. Last year we raised $165,000 through this event. Your beautiful creation will allow us to purchase life-saving equipment for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Huntsville Hospital for Women and Children. You'll never know how much I appreciate your generosity!!

    I would love for you to visit my blog - You'll learn more about Melissa, her twin sister Ann Catherine and our rainbow, Lily Baker.

    Again, God bless you! You are making a difference in the lives of God's tiniest miracles!
