Crib Caddy to Toddler Bag

Sophie is now 2.5 and we are preparing her for the most challenging event in her life thus far.

The move from crib to a big girl bed.

I actually think I'm having a harder time with it than her. What will I do with all the adorable bedding Grandma made for her?

Below is a crib caddy that I stuffed diapers, wipes and paci's in for those late night changes or fits. It hasn't been on the crib now in about a year since Sophie is constantly pulling at the ribbons.

I was tired of seeing it sitting on the closet shelf. I didn't want it to go to waste. Especially since it has her name embroidered. So I turned it into a cute bag! She loves and uses it to carry all her "goodies". It will probably end up being her overnight bag when she stays with Grandma :)

I love what you did with this, great idea! I know I'm getting sad thinking about my daughter making the switch, although we're not quite there yet... :(

Thanks for visiting, glad to see you liked the tutorial on the wipes. Let me know if you try it, I'd love to hear your experience and how you like them! :)
