What do you do with the dozens of old baby clothes you have that are too stained in some places to ever be sold or given away?

Cut them up and make something new!

Made from a pair of pants (waistband) and five different shirts that were heavily stained on the front.  I just cut out the back parts of the shirts to make the patches.

Front (don't mind the umbrella - it was the only way she would stick around for the pictures  Grin)

I just had to add the lace on the bottom to really girl it up.  Definitely not the best sewing job but it works  Wink

That is so cute! great recycling and creativity. I think I might just have to go through the stained baby clothes I have and do this.

Very cute! I made some of these for my DD with scraps of fabric I had lying around, and I'm in love with them.
BTW, I pulled out a box of DD #1's clothes and thought they were too stained to use on DD #2, who is to be born next month. A huge pot of Oxyclean and some laundry detergent, boiled for about 20 minutes and then left to sit for about 12 hours, got all of the stains out, with NO SCRUBBING! I just thought I'd share in case she stains something you don't want to cut up! Grin

This is such a good idea. As hubby has laundry duty most baby things that are stained he tosses instead of pre-treating washing etc.... I'll have to show him this. Maybe I can even motivate him to cut me the squares while he's waiting for the dryer! Cheesy

Thanks everyone for your kind words!

What a great idea!  I will have to remember that - although I don't know if it would work with just my hippie detergent  Huh

I am all about enlisting hubbys/boyfriends into helping.   Cheesy
