Memory Blanket Mothers Day gift designed from outgrown baby clothes by Once Upon a Time Creation

Looking for a very special Mothers Day Gift Idea?

This wonderful Mom of twins could not have asked for a better Mothers Day Gift Idea.


Sarah’s boys were born seven years ago.  As any Mom knows, the first days and nights with your newborn are some of the most challenging and rewarding times of motherhood. The lack of sleep, crazy hormones, and physical recovery are overshadowed by the unconditional love you feel for you new baby.  It goes by in a flash, but the memories live on.


All those tiny little onesies, pjs, and soft, cozy outfits your baby wore in those first few months quickly pass through the dresser as your baby grows faster than you could ever imagine. Before you know it, newborn clothes are replaced by 3 – 6 months, then 6 – 9. It seems like minutes, not months, have passed when you are planning their first birthday party.

As Moms, we manage the daily struggle between giving our kids independence as they grow and holding on to their childhood with both hands. We treasure those baby clothes so much we remember those wonderful baby moments…falling asleep in your arms, the first smile, the first “Dada” and “Mama”, and the looks of sheer wonder because everything is new.

In our yearning to hep other new parents, we may pass along that bouncy seat, stroller, and some of the clothes. But we hold on to our favorites with the hopes that someday we can enjoy them again.

For Sarah, that day has come. She finally pulled those tiny outfits out of storage and ordered the Mother’s Day gift she has been wanting for years.  As we talked through the pile of baby clothes sitting before us, it was fun for her reminisce about how little the boys were and how crazy life can be with twins. By the time we finished planning Sarah’s blanket, she was giddy with excitement and I had gained a friend. Listening to the memories and stories that accompany those baby clothes and learning about what the boys are like now was so much fun.


If you or a friend have saved baby clothes, i would love to help you and your families enjoy them in a new way. Not only does Mom love seeing the baby clothes again, the kids think it’s great too. They cannot believe they were ever that little and have fun analyzing every little square. To snuggle up with your kiddos under her new blanket is the icing on the cake!
