Newborn Clothes

When my son outgrew his clothes I meticulously put away the few of his baby and toddler clothes that he hadn’t destroyed.  He is about as boyish as a boy can get and would run outside and immediately throw himself in the mud and stain his clothes.  He would get grass stains, blood stains, mud stains, and rips in all of his clothes.  I still have a few things in the attic just to keep as a memory but I just donated the rest of them about a month ago.  I was hoping I’d have another child and would be able to use them again but now that my son is eleven I’ve given up on a second child.  HOWEVER everyone tells me that now that I’ve given his baby clothes away I’m certain to get pregnant!  I don’t know if I believe those old wives tales but I’ll keep you posted. 

What have you guys done with your baby clothes?  I've heard of people doing all kinds of crafty stuff like make a baby blanket, stuff a pillow, and make curtains.  I'd love to hear some new ideas!

I've written this for a chance to win a ticket to Blissdom '12.  Happy Mama Gifts is the sponsor so stop over there for baby shower gifts and the chance to win this prize.  The winner will be announced on Labor Day, 2011.  So head on over there to enter to win tickets yourself or just browse her online shop for some great gifts for your next baby shower!

I've made full sized quilts out of their baby clothes for each of my children- a daughter, 15 and a son, 11- to take with them. A Memory Quilt. It is packed away in a box in their closets, for a someday adult home.
