Turn old Baby Clothes into Hairbows!!

Ever wonder what to do with ALL those baby clothes that are outgrown??

Since Giada is our last baby I find myself growing attached to a lot of her clothes. It may sound silly, but I remember where I was when I purchased each item and the feelings I felt in anticipation of her wearing my carefully selected items. It’s no secret that dressing my little girl is probably one of my favorite things to do in life. She has MOUNDS and MOUNDS of clothes it really is insane. My mom jokes that it looks like I have triplets. I cannot hold on to all that clothing, though! So, I’ve been able to part with some of her stuff, some I’ve saved for her to have one day, and some I’ve decided to repurpose. Growing up my Grandma was quite the seamstress and could sew anything and everything for me. I really need to learn how to sew because the possibilities are endless. In the meantime, though, I met Beth. She is a local mom who just started a shop selling handmade items. I reached out to her to see if she would be interested in transforming some of Giada’s clothes into knot hair bows.

These are a few pics of her in this anchor dress!

One of my first times coordinating her and her big bro:

And one of my first times letting her try on my bling:

For someone who sews, this was a pretty simple task. She simply made two ovals, sewed them together, and then tied in a knot. Each one is attached to a clip and can be clipped in her hair or added to a headband.

They turned out SO FABULOUS.  I cannot thank her enough for making these for me.  Now I can enjoy seeing Giada’s clothes on her a lot longer 🙂
