Up-cycle: My Old Pregnancy Shirt

I've been cleaning out the closet making room for winter clothes, and I found a cute Motherhood pregnancy shirt I used to wear when I was pregnant with Miniboss. I love that it's soft and has lots of sentimental value to me. I wanted to keep it but I know I'll never wear it again so I wanted to do something fun with it.

I cut up the shirt and made a cute bow pillow!

Isn't is adorable?! So sweet and now it's something she can have on her bed that was hers and mine :) So don't toss out your old pregnancy shirts that reminded you of the hard 40 weeks (41 for me!) you carried your baby in your belly, turn it into a keepsake pillow for your little ones crib.

P.S. It looks lumpy because the pillow forms kinda lumpy..not the sewing lol :)
