More Crafting....

Last week I finished up a baby shower present....

yep, it's a diaper cake! (Doesn't it look like WALL-E or E.T. though!) :)

I love making these,but they do require a LOT of time and work. The base of the cake takes forever and can be quite tedious, but I love filling it with all the little extras.

I made homemade burp cloths out of that oh-so soft baby chenille fabric on one side, and cute baby prints on the other side. I think they turned out pretty great! I just hope the recipient likes them!

The finished product! This one is for a girl...can ya tell?! ;)

Now, onto some other little projects....
I made 2 different sized blue ticking pillows. This material is so nice, it is already very tea stained and old looking although you can't tell from the pictures.
Not sure where these will end up yet?!

I also made another pennant from burlap that says WISH in blue sparklie letters, and it has silver glitter on all three sides with a fleur de lis ribbon.

Well, that is all I have to share for today....working on some other things, but they will take me awhile, I am still brainstorming on my bedroom re-do. Have a great weekend!


  1. Love the diaper cake! I've made only one and it was great fun and I put lots of extra goodies around it as well to decorate it up. The burp clothes are so cute, I didn't think about the chenille on one side but I will next time.
    Hope you have a great weekend as well.

  2. Aren't diaper cakes just so fun to make? I so enjoy them and have made many over the last several years. They make such sweet gifts.

    Hope you're enjoying your summer!
