You got something like a zillion teeny, tiny, adorable little onesies for your baby shower. They’re so super-cute that you can’t stand it. But then your baby grows. And grows and grows. Now what are you going to do with the mountains of onesies that you have stockpiled? Well, one company has an answer for you. Check out this aww-worthy adorable way that Imagination Acres LLC is transforming your baby’s old onesies.

Yep. They take your kiddo’s used onesies and sleepers and turn them into something else. This company makes cute little stuffed bears out of reused baby clothes.

Here’s how it all goes down. You order your bear (they actually also make elephants too) from their Etsy shop. Next, you send them your baby’s garment. They then turn it into the stuffed animal. It’s magic! Okay, it’s not really magic. Apparently, it’s really the careful custom sewing talents of a full-time UMW student who also moonlights as a stuffed animal artist.

The company’s website notes that while any baby garment will work, smaller onesies (such as preemie sizes) result in smaller stuffies. They recommend using an item that is size 6 months or up for a decent sized bear/elephant.

Oh, and it’s not just baby’s onesies that you can turn into stuffed animals. You can also send along baby blankets, kid clothes or your own items. And then there’s this — Imagination Acres LLC isn’t just a sweet toy company. Nope. They’re a real working farm, and breed rabbits and goats!
