*I'm actually typing this with my 3-month-old daughter in my lap - desperate times call for desperate measures for those of us who want time to blog but baby does not want to be put down!*
I have this on my mind since Jaedyn
is growing out of her clothes so quickly. I've already given away two bags of baby clothes that were given to me and now I'm slowly but surely filling another bag. So, what can we do with those baby clothes
that are too small (and were only worn twice
before Jaedyn grew out of them!):
them - Salvation Army, Goodwill, Freecycle, someone you might know that has a baby.
♥ Sell them on eBay
♥ Save them for your next baby
(assuming you're brave enough to go through the pregnancy/labor thing again - I'm not sure if I am! lol).
Or, if you're sentimental
about the adorable clothes your sweet little baby wore, like me:
♥ Make a memory
quilt! Cut your onesies into fabric squares and sew together to make a quilt. Sounds so easy, doesn't it? ;-) There are also places that will sew quilts for you from your baby clothes. I'm rather fond of this site - Ticche and Bea
These cute little plushies were made from outgrown baby clothes (found here
Or make a teddy
♥ Re-use your baby clothes by cutting the bottom off a onesie and making it into a t-shirt or turning little
pants into shorts. (I don't like this idea as much because I love picking out new baby clothes, though - lol)
♥ Use cute clothing as baby room decor - little dresses hung on a clothespin across the wall, etc.
♥ If you're a scrapbooker, use little pieces
of fabric, ribbon, or buttons as embellishments!
