Baby Shower Gift

ooohhh how I

LOVE

making presents for

brand new

little

people

I recently attended a baby shower so

I whipped up some of these little

DIAPER BABIES

from tiny diapers, socks,
washcloths and ribbon

{Oh…and some googly eyes, too!}

Here’s how:

Some baby washcloths

some cute baby socks

home 043 - Copy

spread out one of the washcloths –
fold it in half corner to corner

home 044 - Copy

take a disposable diaper (I used pampers swaddlers size 2)

home 045 - Copy

place the sock on one end of the diaper to form the

Hat

(squish down the toe part of the sock to push down the hat)

home 048 - Copy

like this – ta da!

home 049 - Copy

see -

home 046 - Copy

now wrap up the ‘body’ with the washcloth

(like you’re swaddling a baby or making a burrito!!)

and tie in place with some coordinating ribbon

home 047 - Copy

now for the

FUN

draw little closed sleeping eyes

and

attach some googly eyes

  21. Hi all,

    Diapering is probably the most dreaded of all baby care activities. The truth of the matter is that diapering has gotten much easier as the years have gone by. No matter if you use cloth or disposable diapers, they are easier to use and hold more with fewer leaks than even 10 years ago. Thanks for sharing it......

  24. It's nice to find a site you can trust. I like the privacy of shopping online, but you never know what sites are okay. Visit Mymiraclebaby.com this site was recommended by a friend so I tried it. They provide a Personalized baby Gifts, Personalized Gifts, Baby Gifts at affordable price.Their service was great! I'm becoming a frequent shopper!

  25. Nice post its quite useful, i have just started my own website and it looks like this will help a lot.

  26. It is traditional to have everyone watch the mommy-to-be open the baby shower gifts at the end of the shower. Sometimes, people may get bored, especially if there are a lot of gifts. A great idea is to have a baby shower present BINGO game. Place numbers on all the gifts and make bingo cards for every baby shower guest that is still, there for the present opening.

  33. My oldest daughter and I always make pamper cakes for her cousins and friend's baby showers and we always have left over diapers. This is a wonderful way to use the extras :) Thank you!

  34. I made these for decorations around my quick change for on-the-go diaper change. Have a shower this weekend and these projects were fun and easy. However, I did use both socks for hat, and put the insides together and pulled them out and had both good sides showing, as my socks were not like the pic. You could tell the insides..

    Thanks for sharing!
