Creative ReUse: Baby Clothes

Published on NewsOK Published: February 27, 2013

6) Another fabric book, which is appropriate for children a little older, can incorporate other parts of clothing: a page with a zipper, a page with buttons, a page with overall clasps, and on. This is a great way for children to learn how to use these different systems.

7) A low-tech rattle is very easy to whip up, simply by sewing fabric into a ball, stuffing it with cotton batting, and adding a little bell inside.

8) Fabric covered buttons are fun to make, and allow you to add a little piece of your family history to any article of clothing. Or, just make a bunch of the buttons and then let your kids play with them as a sensory exercise!

9) Rosettes, or fabric flowers, are another crafty way to use small pieces of fabric. These can be added to your clothing, your kid’s clothing, used to make pretty headbands, or used in decorations around the house.

10) And finally, don’t be afraid to frame the clothing just exactly as it is. This is especially nice for that itsy bitsy and oh-so-special “coming home” outfit, and looks adorable hung in the nursery.
