When your baby is little, onesies - one-piece outfits - are easy to get on and off for diaper changes, so your kid wears them a lot. And because babies grow so incredibly fast, they don’t get to wear them long before they’ve moved on to the next size.
So as sentimental mamas, we get attached to certain outfits our infants wear. Sometimes because they’re just really cute, or because we remember how darling our baby looked in it, or because it came from someone special. And aside from storing the baby clothes in a box with other keepsakes, there’s not much else you can do with the outfits once they’re too small.
But there’s an Etsy shop that has a solution. Imagination Acres makes adorable, handmade stuffed animals out of your little one’s old clothes. They can do elephants, bears, and bunnies and they are really cute. Plus, this makes a much better momento than holding onto an old pair of jammies or a onesie your baby wore. This you could let your kid have to snuggle with, or set on a shelf and hold onto the memory of when they were that tiny.
