Diaper bike/trike


I made this for my daughters shower party later today for the center piece. The seat is a burpie I made and embroidered. The daddy saw it Thursday when I brought it in. I looked at him and said heres your new son's first tricycle, he was speechless and walked around the table looking at it from several directions. Finally he says, that is so cool! I've never seen anything like that! Everyone who's seen it thinks it pretty neat, lol! It should get lots of ohh and ahhs at the party today.

Awesome, I have seen lots of things made for a baby shower from diapers, but never a tricycle. You will be asked to make more I am betting.

about an hour. I had little helpers, not sure if they slowed me down or helped me go faster, lol! But we had fun.

Waooo, as this is very original presentation!
Apparently there are layers, two bibs, two bandanas and mittens is that right? Are there other things? I had never seen that before. What imagination. Congratulations.

A pair of baby socks, usually two bibs, I used one and a burpie for the seat instead of a bib, a baby bottle for the head light, two recieving blankets, and a large package of size 1 baby diapers. I used a box of 96 or 98, I forget, lol! Oh and rubber bands, ribbons, and hot glue to glue the ribbon ends together. This way everything is usable for the baby after the party. I gave her the box the diapers came in so she can put them back in the box until she needs them.

rubber bands, ribbons and hot glue to glue the ribbon ends together. Also a cardboard paper towel rool to wrap the diapers around to make the diapers. That way everything can be used my the baby. I gave her the box the diapers came in so she can put them back in the box until she needs them.
