Save clothes from the first year of life of your children & make them quilts and give them to them as gifts at a milestone in their lives (first communion or 16th birthday or wedding baby showers...or anything that comes up before that) when they will appreciate the meaning of it. :)
10 Creative Keepsake Ideas for Outgrown Baby Clothes - And the hubby wanted to make me get rid of all Bugsy's clothes...
I've seen this idea a few different places now, and really think its a neat idea. Make a quilt out of the outgrown baby clothes to help preserve the memories. This lady, as well as a few other sites I've seen, can make them for you. But maybe I'll attempt this as a future sewing project. :) Carrie Reese Hildreth
Previous pinner: Made these for my kiddos for their Christmas ornaments this year. I put a picture on one side, a copy of their baby foot prints on another side, their name, birthday and birth weight on another and then I am a child of God on the last side. Turned out so cute!
Baby clothes quilt- not going to lie. I LOVE this idea. I can't sew worth a squat, but I think I can talk my mom into helping me with it. Such a great way to keep baby's favorite outfits! :)
Wish I would have done this for Dil instead of donating all his old stuff. Good idea for Kenzie ;) Quilt made from outgrown baby clothes
