I was approached recently about making christmas ornaments from treasured baby clothes. I thought it was a wonderful idea and just finished the first one. This is a little bunny made from a sweet little dress. I hated to cut it up to use, it was so cute!
What a special way to remember those sweet baby outfits and actually see them. We’ve kept a few of our kids cute outfits for them to look back at one day and see what they wore and how small they were but they are all sitting in a tub in our attic. This way you actually get to display them. This ornament along with others I’ll be making soon will be left without any wording on them and are intended to be used on the children’s little Christmas tree. I’ll also be making a baby’s first christmas ornament from special baby clothes with words embroidered on it. I’m looking forward to this project. It’s nice to have something a bit different to work on especially without the stress and hectic-ness of the holiday season.
I’ll share the others as I make them. Question: would you rather keep your baby’s clothes intact or turn it into some time of special keepsake?
P.S. Sorry for the lack of posts, I knew it had been a couple weeks but didn’t realize it had almost been a month! Where does the time go? We just celebrated my daughter’s fourth birthday with a rainbow/pony party so I’ll share a couple pictures from that and also my husband and oldest son just got back from a trip to Haiti so it’s been pretty non-stop around here!
