Diaper Cakes

As more babies have entered the mom’s group so have more diaper cakes. This top one was made for baby Ruben. Haley made the argyle Octopus out of a pair of socks.


This owl diaper cake was made for our friend Liasa who is having a little boy at the end of the month. She loves owls and purple so we did our best to “boy” that up.


The Cake topper was a little owl sitting in a nest. I used the owl stuffie tutorial but shrunk down the pattern.


The nest was made by making a tube out of some contact paper with the sticky side out. Then I rolled it in scraps of fabric and string and bits of yarn. I used a zig zag stitch to add some larger pieces on the outside and securing everything in place. I did not trim my threads neatly. Lastly I connected the narrow ends to make a circle and stitched that in place too. I punched a couple of holes in the bottom so it could be tied onto the top of the cake and then the owl was nestled inside.


In Liasa’s diaper cake we included some hand knit baby socks, burpcloths, baprons, washcloths and a thing that will strap over a door latch so you can close the door quietly.


We can’t wait to meet the little guy.
