Those favorite baby clothes that you are saving for something (you don’t know what and let’s face it, you’re never going to make that quilt and neither is your mother) can be memorialized yet another way. Take a close up photo of the fabric using the macro setting on your camera (that little tulip icon). Print and frame.
