Making New Clothes for Kids

Kids all want new clothes for the new school year, but that can get expensive.  Luckily, you can reuse old clothes that they don’t like, or repurpose old backpacks, and decorate them with your kids so they’ll look different and fun.

If you have older kids, your younger kids can get their hand-me-down clothing.  Or, take some clothes that your kid doesn’t wear or like anymore, and redesign them!  You can tie-dye clothes with your kids for a fun activity that will make those clothes even more fun to wear.  Get some fun fabric dye colors, and take some old jeans, t-shirts or shorts, tie them with some rubber bands and put the fabric dye on them!  It’ll leave fun patterns and colors that’ll make it seem like new clothing your kid will love.

Similarly, you can take those old clothes or hand-me-downs and sew patches on them.  If your kid loves princesses or super heroes or animals, you can go together and pick out their favorite patches.  Then sew them on to some jeans or shirts so that they can wear their favorite characters on their clothes!  This also works great on backpacks, so that they won’t have the same-looking backpack as the previous year.

Lastly, you can bedazzle any clothes with some fun and bright beads!  Add beads, jewelry and glitter to clothes and backpacks to make any outfit dazzling.  Or take stencils or shape outlines and draw with a sharpie or fabric marker your kids’ favorite characters! 

These will be really fun activities to do with your kids, and it will also save you money so you don’t have to buy new clothes every school year.  Your kids will love their new outfits that they made, and it’ll be the start of a great new school year!

Gifts for a Baby Shower

Having a baby is an exciting time, and throwing a baby shower to celebrate is just one of the perks! Whether you already know the gender of the baby, or have already picked out names, baby showers are a lot of fun and really helpful for the new parents with the gifts they receive. So, whether it’s for someone else’s baby shower, or for the gift registry for your own baby shower, here are some good ideas for gifts.

 

DIAPER BAGS

With the multitude of diapers that people like to give, you’ll need somewhere to put all those diapers when you take your baby out. A diaper bag that is big enough to hold all the essentials but also comfortable enough to carry will be an extremely useful gift for the new parents.

 

PERSONALIZED GIFT

If you know the baby’s name or gender, a personalized gift is always beautiful. Inscribe the baby’s name on pillows, picture frames or wall art that can be put in the nursery. And if you like to knit, you can make socks or hand-knit sweaters or onesies that button up so they’re easier to put on.

 

HOUSECLEANING SERVICES

Furthermore, a great gift to give to parents is housecleaning service! With all the chaos of having a new baby, cleaning up can be even more exhausting, so this makes a wonderful gift to the parents.

So other than the usual gifts of blankets, diapers, toys, and books to read to the baby, these are some cute and useful gifts to give or ask for at a baby shower!
