Frame one of your favorite onesies to remember their size! http://www.everydaycelebrating.com/2010/05/it-wont-be-like-this-for-long.html

Like most active kids, my daughter had a collection of tee-shirts from school, camp, church, even birthday parties. As she outgrew them, I had put them aside. When she left elementary school, I made them into a quilt. I cut out a panel from each tee, about 12"x12", interfaced the blocks so they wouldn't stretch, then sewed them all together. I added quilt batting and a back. Some of the trim pattern was left over material from her nursery set. (Photo is not on my blog, but I posted on flckr)

Ok, This is not exactly baby stuff that I recycled, but for baby. I had some large cardboard packing boxes from a furniture. I made a playhouse for my 2 year old daughter. She loves it and her old blankets serve as carpets of her house.
I have also used her outgrown clothes to make toys like balls and puppets. Hope you enjoy this.

I loove upcycling onesies, there are so many possibilities and some of them have great pattern and text which can be used when kids get older. They are also soft and perfect for summer beanies. My most recent project though is tiny clothes for my sons lovey, which turned out too cute for words and it took 10 minutes to make.

I came across a pin on how to turn a crib (without completely ruining it) in a play desk. I changed it a little bit and used mine for a daybed. Kind of like those fancy convertible cribs but less expensive.
