Upcycled Baby Clothing Creature by Alisa Burke of Alisa Burke

I just LOVE softies especially ones that can evoke sentimental memories. If you love to recycle and love creating sentimental memories from your children's clothing then you'll love Alisa Burke's Upcycled Baby Clothing Creatures tutorial. Turn your kids clothing into sentimental softies. What a great idea!

Here's what Alisa had to say about her tutorial: Our baby is growing like a weed and that means lots of clothing doesn't fit anymore! And while we haven't invested very much money in her wardrobe (thank goodness!), we still have some cute things that already hold lots of memories and I can't bear to get rid of. So I have been saving my favorite outfits to cut up and create a whole bunch of abstract and whimsical little creatures to keep in Lucy's room for future play time and to display as little mementos of her early years. As she continues to grow out of more clothing, I will keep adding more creature to the collection!
