Getting your kiddo something to wear is not an easy task for a parent. Of course, you have to spend money just to make sure that they look good on the clothes they wear. But as they grow old, their once-wore clothes are no longer in use because they quickly grow out of it. Buying them clothes again can be very expensive- which means you can’t be able to save money!
So what to do? Try recycling their old clothes by making them new just by simply sewing them again into different look. Yes, you heard it right; and through this, you’ll be saving money while your kid turns into a ‘fashionista’. Take a look at some of DIY outfits you can also make:
