I use the flannel receiving blankets to make mama cloth.  I also give my daughter some of the baby clothes and blankets for her dolls.  No need to buy doll clothes!!

Pretty cool ideas! It's hard to get rid of the baby clothes, so making a quilt or pillow with them is a great idea and excuse to keep them ;)

I have passed on most of the kids baby stuff except what I am saving for them. Making a toyt out of a baby blanket or shirt would be a great idea

Can't participate in this yet, still pregnant with my first. But we are using some hand me downs from his cousin! :)

I never thought of this. I was always into donating or handing down baby clothes... Adult clothes and Ts on the other hand, definitely into frankensteining those into little people clothes and toys!

Im passing those on to my sisters who are prego now. Baby clothes in our family get passed around until they are rags. My son and niece were the 12 and 13 to wear baby clothes and my new niece and nephew will be 14&15. They obviously aren't new looking, but no holes.

flannel and fleece baby blankets make awesome swiffer cloths. If you layer the flannel and fleece a couple of times it makes and awesome swiffer wet cloth
