6 Clever Ways to Deal With Outgrown Baby Clothes

1. Recycle Baby Socks Into Bunnies, Chicks and Eggs

If you’ve got a baby, then odds are you’ve got a mountain of baby socks. There’s very little you can do with this mountain, but we’ve got one super-clever and cute idea for you. Put your crafty skills to good use and make some adorable bunnies, chicks and eggs out of those tiny socks. If you’re new to DIY crafts, no worries this project is almost as easy as pie.

2. Join thredUP and Trade Clothing

thredUP is a really useful clothing exchange program designed especially for social networking savvy parents. thredUp helps you switch out used clothing for nearly new, gently used pieces. Best of all, this clothing exchange is practically free.

3. Make Your Own ‘Owly’ Plush Toy

This project is so easy a child could do it. No joke – in fact, a child is exactly who created this adorable DIY owl project and it’s a cute way to reuse any fabric you have laying about, including used baby clothing into a sweet plush toy for the very kids who just outgrew the clothing.

    Great tips! Over here at thredUP we’re honored to be kept in such high company with bunny socks and fabric flowers 🙂 We dig being part of a community that can think so far outside (or in our case, INSIDE) the box! Thanks! ~ Sara at thredUP.

    We are filling up a refrigerator box full of clothing to send to Paraguay. We are saving children’s shoes and clothing. The children in Paraguay rarely can afford shoes. If only I could get the clothing that the people who read this need to discard for our collections to send to the poor people in Paraguay.

    Trend-Up is a good way to replace your baby’s outgrown clothes with clothes that are appropriate to their age. Alternatively is to sell then on consignment stores for kis clothing in that way you have some money in you hand to buy new ones if you choose.
