Create a sweet keepsake with baby's outgrown clothing

As baby’s closet starts to overflow with outgrown clothing, we’re all faced with the task of donating or recycling each little onesie, sleeper and blanket. While this is usually a simple task in our own closets, it can actually become an emotional experience as you remember your little one’s “firsts” while wearing these tiny outfits. If you can’t bear the thought of giving away particular articles, why do it? Send them away to a quilter who specializes in memory quilts and products. Within a few months, you’ll receive something that you and your child can enjoy for years to come.
