    One of my co-workers will be having a baby shower next month.
    I seem to remember seeing a cake that was made of diapers rolled up and baby stuff decorated it. You couldn't eat it! Does anyone know which one I mean?
    Also, I saw awhile ago some Burp Cloths that were made with cloth diapers from WalMart and then you sewed cute baby fabric around the ends (or bottoms) as a trim.
    Can anyone help...
    Much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Kirsten

    Look on E Bay, they have lots of them for sale.

    I think it would be easy to make your own once
    you see a few pictures.

    Kirsten,

    I made all of my kids burp cloths and have made dozens like this for baby showers. They are as easy-sneezy to do by using fat quarters . . . no cutting or measuring necessary!

    I used birdseye cloth diapers from Target. Got them in packs of 12. (FYI: I found that the non-birdseye ones were too thick for my sewing machine, but my machine is pretty old and basic. The birdseye ones worked perfectly).

    For each burp cloth you need:

    One diaper, washed and pressed
    One fat quarter, washed and pressed
    Coordinating or contrasting all-purpose thread

    How to:

    Lay fat quarter wrong side up. Center diaper on top (I generally just eyeballed it). Pin in place. Zigzag stitch the full length right on top of the two center seams of the diaper. Fold over raw edges of fat quarter, long sides first, and pin. Zigzag stitch along the edge. Fold over raw edges of fat quarter, short ends, and pin. Zigzag stitch along the edge. Voila . . . finished.

    It's fun to find FQ's that are just right for the mom-to-be/baby. Roll each burp cloth and bundle in packs of 3 or 4. Handmade, simple, fast, practical, and they can be washed a million times. And they look so much better than just a boring white diaper! :lol:

    The pictures are of a few I made for my kids (who are now 3 and 5 years old). Once they are no longer needed as burp cloths, they make GREAT cleaning rags. I use them all the time . . . saves on papertowels when housecleaning.

    Hope this is helpful. Good luck!

    Jen

    There is a great tutorial on You Tube. On You Tube, just use the search function for Diaper Cake or Diaper Stack Cake.

    Thanks Chele. They whip up in about 10 minutes apiece. So easy. Babies love them too because they are so soft. My boys both liked to sleep with theirs. LOL
