Years ago I attended a baby shower and someone made a baby from diapers. I know the rage now is diaper cakes, but I would like to make a diaper baby. Does anyone know how I would do this??? Ive looked and just cant seem to find any directions. Thanks..

I just spent an looking for the directions with no results, but I did find a couple of pictures. Perhaps you can use them as the pattern. There is a baby in a baby outfit, but honestly, I prefer the bear - much cuter. e-mail me at grandmabonnienospam@charter.net - remove the no spam in my addy and I can send you the pictures...

I know of a baby made from receiving blankets but not diapers. I have instructions for several version of Diaper critters but not the baby.
Sorry, I'm not much more help.

My best friends Mother used to make some...hers were made with the long cloth diapers...

She rolled them into a body shape , arm shape, leg shape and stuffed one into a ball shape...She may have used diaper or paper toweling for the stuffing...

Then she cut a baby face out of a magazine that would be life size for a baby taped it on...

Oh and she hand stitched it together with large stitches so it would be easy to get apart.

She then bought clothes for the baby , usually jammies with feet and hands so none of the diaper showed.And a bonnet or hat of some kind to cover head.

I took one to work one day and everyone thought it was real at first. It looked so real...all wrapped up in a receiving blanket.

I don't know what kind of diapers you wanted to use...if you are planning to use disposable you could roll them and hook them together with rubberbands.
