♥ Sweet Ideas for Outgrown Baby Clothes ♥

*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!):

Donate them - Salvation Army, Goodwill, Freecycle, someone you might know that has a baby.

♥ Sell them on eBay or Craigslist.

♥ 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. :-)

Create keepsakes!

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!
♥ Or, this eHow article cracked me up: How to recycle newborn clothes into cute outfits for your dog.

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
