Upcycle Baby

I’m crazy about upcycled clothing! It’s cute, it’s one-of-a-kind and it’s eco-friendly! Upcycling means there’s less fabric being tossed into landfills and less toxins being used to produce manufactured nonorganic fabrics. When I saw Upcycle Baby clothing, I was dying to review and promote this company!

The Front:

The back:

Kelsey made this special Kimono Hoodie for B that I love! It’s cute, comfortable, and the peace sign on the back is such a groovy detail. Her sizes run a bit larger than typical. This, for instance, was a 12-18 months, but probably fits more like a 2T. It’s perfect for me because it’ll keep him warm through the winter and hopefully beyond! It washed well and is very high quality!

Kimono Hoodies are only one of several items that she makes. You can also find yoga pants, bermuda shorts, an adorable top, and a skirt! Something for boys and girls! Be sure to visit her website and see all of her upcycled creations! A HUGE thank you to Kelsey for making B something so special!

How to purchase: you can purchase both through Kelsey’s website or at several establishments in Vermont! Don’t hestitate to contact her about a custom order.

About Kelsey:

I am an art teacher, a crafter, and a mom of two little girls…so little in fact that I had to take up sewing in order for them to have clothes that fit. Fed up with having to constantly “take in” every pair of pants that my daughter owned, I turned to the web figuring there must be something online that would show me how to make a simple pair of pants to fit my daughter.  Apparently all I needed was a sewing machine and an old t-shirt. It just so happens that my husband’s closet is overflowing with t-shirts so I picked one with a fun color and a cool logo and that began my new passion- upcycling.  I love knowing that each piece of clothing I create means one less t-shirt will end up in a landfill and that no additional textiles had to be manufactured which saves our precious resources. Every small act of green living makes a difference.  I feel lucky to live in Vermont, a state filled with supportive communities that share the ideals of recycling, being green, living simply, and buying local.

I received this product free of charge and all opinions expressed are my own.
