In 2017, Carli Grant was a mom of two kids, with a third on the way. It was around this time that she started learning to sew. Putting her new-found skills to use, her husband, Josh, gave her the idea to up-cycle old clothes into outfits for their kids. But when he saw what she had made, he couldn’t believe his eyes.
Times can be tough when you’re a young mom with small kids to feed and clothe. Carli already had a stepson, Ryan, and her own daughter, Amelia, to think about. And with a baby on the way, she began to think about outfits for the newborn’s wardrobe.
Noticing that perhaps too much money had been spent on baby clothes already, Carli decided to take a different approach. She started to learn how to sew, with the idea that she would make the baby’s clothes herself. As frugal a plan as it was, her husband noticed something that the young mom hadn’t realized.
