I was so earnest the first few times I did laundry for my brand new baby. It took me hours! New moms tend to suffer from this thing called exhaustion, though, so I quickly became a little less zealous about treating stains every time I did laundry. Needless to say, we have a pile of stained baby clothes around our house, and not all of them are the kiddo’s fault! Recently, I pulled out a load of laundry from the dryer and noticed blue stains on most of the clothes inside. Ahhhh! After diligently treating them, some of the stains just wouldn’t budge. So I decided to just embrace the stained baby clothes, and use them as a creative opportunity to do something fun. Check out how I turned my daughter’s plain white onesie, ahem, plain white onesie with blue spots that is, into a simple embellished shirt.
