Fun Finds For Mom

Turn your toddler’s favorite tee into a pillow

See my cute owl-loving niece Natalie hugging her new pillow? Well the owl was once on her t-shirt, which used to be my daughter’s shirt. I think my mom got it for her, so thanks mom – the shirt’s gotten a lot of mileage.

Natalie’s creative mom, my sis-in-law Dana, had it made into a pillow as part of Natalie’s “big girl” room makeover.  I think this is such a clever way to hang onto a piece of a shirt that your little one loves, and outgrows — or in my case, a shirt your little one loves but becomes so covered with stains that they probably shouldn’t be wearing it out in public any more.

I was feeling bad for sending so many stained clothes to my niece (especially since the hand-me-downs I get from my other sis-in-law Trish are always in pristine condition) but this project makes me feel a little better. More stained clothes coming your way, Dana!
