How many different kinds of baby products could you make with an old sweater?  We looked around for upcycling inspiration and share what we find!

We thought that these were a nice eco-friendly twist on some traditional baby gifts.

Baby blanket.  You can often find cashmere at thrift stores – what could be cozier?

Baby hat.  Warning:  very cute picture.

Baby pants.  These can be just adorable!

Baby leg warmers.  Instructions show adult size, but use a baby sweater and it should work!

Baby booties.  Made from a felted sweater

Diaper covers.  Wool is breathable and keeps babies’ bottoms warm in winter!

Prefold diapers.  A cheap and eco-friendly alternative

Stuffed animals.  Requires a pattern.

Nursing pillow cover.  Instructions are for use with fabric – you’d have to sew together sweater pieces.

Even nursing pads!
