How to Make the Perfect Keepsake with Outgrown Baby Clothes


As babies just keep growing, it seems the time flies by so quickly. Before you know it, they’re not babies anymore. You blink and they begin walking, talking, and before long, they’re going off to college. Luckily, there are tons of DIY projects out there to help you hold on to your kids’ childhood, a keepsake that allows you to relive those happy memories whenever you please.

By turning your baby’s sleeper into a keepsake teddy bear, you can create heirloom-style mementos for your kids. Not only does this fantastic idea repurpose baby clothing, a bear is something children can enjoy for years and possibly even pass down to their own children someday. If you don’t want to use your baby’s sleeper, any type of fabric will work as well.

f you aren’t particularly into the idea of creating a bear, a baby keepsake shadow box is a fantastic idea to also hold onto your favorite memories with your children and display them directly on your wall for all to see! Check out the video below to see how it’s done.
