Some shirts and dresses from my “Recycling Collection”. I make use of worn out clothes, home textiles etc. and convert them into clothes for children (1-2) years of age.

Material Notes

Almost always 100% cotton, very often the clothes have been washed many times, so the material is very soft & nice for children to wear.

    They look lovely! I also think it’s a great idea to make baby clothes out of vintage fabric, since all the chemical nasties that you get when printing fabrics etc probably have been washed out a long time ago.

    What a wonderful project! I love making doll clothes out of my old worn out clothing, but I never thought about baby clothes! That’s so perfect and they look so professional. I’d totally buy these for a baby shower!

    These are so cute!! I love recycling old materials, the quality and the patterns that you can find are just so much better than what’s new and available from the shops. It’s such a good idea making them for children, and they look adorable! I can’t wait until i have kids so that i can sew them all of their clothes!! :p I would start now, but i just don’t have the time (I’m in my final year of high school). Oh, and the quality of your creations is great! They look like they have been sewn very professionally, how long have you been sewing for? Ren.
