I love this idea for a Baby Clothes Quilt – Preserving your child’s memories. If you have a box of treasured baby clothes in a tote in your closet then this post is for you! I had this quilt custom made using Peyton’s baby clothes, his bumper pad, baby quilt and other special baby items that I had kept from his first year. It was custom made by a local seamstress and it is a one of kind. It is the most cherished possession I own! I was brought to tears of joy when she brought it to me.
She babysits her grandchildren and quilts and sews on the side. I met her two year’s ago at a vendor event and then we finally got together and I gave everything to her about a year ago. I knew that and I was in no rush for it. We laid out a design and I told her what to embroider however I turned the design over to her and was not sure what I expected but I have to tell you I was in shock when I saw it. It was so much more than what I expected!
I always knew I wanted this made but I had to find the right person to do this because these memories are so precious and treasured and I wanted the outfits preserved just as they were. If you are considering a keepsake to preserve the memories of your child’s first year or special events this is a great idea. There are several resources on Etsy too.
Peyton was so excited to get the quilt too and we have talked about the memories already and it is going to give us a lot more to continue talking about in the future. I will be passing this onto him when the times is right of course.
