I would be asking for your money back and tell her you don't want the items after she has finished with them.
Send a reply along the lines of:
No problems you can have them back for $x, I won't be in need of the clothes in the future as I have decide I only want new things for our baby. You can pick them up on Monday but please ensure you have the $$ with you.
Some people amaze me lol, I know someone who asks for good hand me downs from her sister and once she's finished with them she pops them on eBay, so she gets the clothes for free then sells them :0

Let us know the outcome. What a weirdo. My opinion is the same as everyone else. You pay, they are yours. But in my world I give everything away to family and friends.

what a weird situation to be in!
I don't think the replies above take into consideration that she might not have everything together. She might be really struggling financially, she might have misunderstood your arrangement. Or she might just be a weirdo.
Perhaps just ignore the messages for now and see what happens. if she persists say something like, "I thought we agreed that I could buy the clothes off you. If you want them back I'll just get back what I paid for them."
Asking for more than what you paid for them is just greedy. Yes, you laundered and stored them, but just let it go. It's probably not worth the headache on your part.
Keep us in the loop as to what happens!

Firstly, how rude!
I would say- sorry, I bought them off you second hand for $220. I washed and ironed and stored them all. Now you basically want to "borrow" them back to use on another child, and then return them to me, third hand. You can't possibly guarantee they will be in the same condition and I already paid you for second hand clothes, not third hand. I understand you paid full retail but I still paid a lot for second hand. If you want them back that's fine, but I would like $250- $220 refunded plus $30 for my time washing, ironing and then storing them. If you're happy with that then let me know how you'd like to pay and we can organise for you to collect. If not, I'm happy to keep them, thanks.

She's seriously tripping if she thinks that's ok to do/say to you. If she wanted them back, she should have kept them or lent them, not sold them!!
They belong to you to do with what you want.
