Don't throw out dad's old button down shirts, recycle them into a cute little girl's dress! Adorable and looks comfortable too. I don't really like frilly little girls' dresses, they aren't good for anything except sitting still.
Easy, Jumbo, Reversible Receiving Blanket (HAPPY HOOLIGANS) - great for baby and for wrapping a toddler up after the bath. Nice and big to tuck around baby in the stroller and carseat as well. If you can sew a straight line, you can make these.
