What to do with those old baby clothes:

So your second baby is getting a bit bigger now and you are looking at the piles and piles of clothes you’ve collected over the past few years.

Some of them you are more attached to than others. Obviously you have some lovely keepsakes and quilts made from your favourite outfits but the question is….. what to do with all the rest of those boxes of baby clothes! If you can use a sewing machine go down the DIY route and upcycle those clothes .There are lots of internet guides . But what if you’re not so keen ?


Here are 10 ideas of what to do with your children’s old baby clothes that don’t require too much effort:

1. Take them to the charity shop – if they’re not good enough quality to be worn again you can still donate them as ‘rags’ and the charity will still make money from them.

2. Come to us at https://beemymemory.co.uk and a whole zoo full of beautiful keepsake animals and cover every bed you own in a keepsake quilt or blanket ?

3. Put them on Freecycle.

4. Sell bundles of them on ebay or on a parenting forum like netmums or mumsnet, where you can do it locally so people can collect rather than having to package everything up and post it.

5. Give them to friends and/or family.

6. Have another baby ????

7. Sell them by the kilo to places like clothesbank.co.uk (they’ll even come and pick them up) in return for immediate cash.

8. Let us turn them in to a special animal, blanket, quilt or cushion. Ok, so technically it is the same as point number two but I think it’s such a good idea it’s worth mentioning twice!

9. Organise a clothesaid.co.uk collection for your childrens’ school. Get parents to donate a bag full of clothes each and the school will get £600 for every tonne of clothing they collect. A tonne is about 200 bags. Clothes Aid will even send you posters to advertise the collection, bags to put the clothes in a thank you certificate once .
