Something is surely in air that I have been hearing/reading the *good news* everywhere! Among friends & family in India, here in US, celebrities, etc...most of them having or about to have Baby!
Wowww!! perfect reason to celebrate, to be creative!! Everyone has so many questions, regarding Baby Showers, Welcome Baby Parties, Decorating Nursery, Buying Baby Products, Maternity Fashion, even A Perfect & Stylish Diaper Bags!!
I have already shared a few Baby Shower/Welcome Baby ideas and got overwhelming response! So I thought of posting more detailed posts about these.
To re-start, I'll share a tutorial of Diaper Bike, it's a variation of our very own Diaper Cake! Last weekend we friends threw a surprise Baby Shower for our friend! As always, all had super-fun!! And I made this Diaper Bike!
Designing Life has already shared these Diaper Cakes!

TUTORIAL FOR DIAPER BIKE
34 Diapers, size1 (17 for each tier)
8" Round cake pan or similar shaped utensil/box
2 Large rubber bands
2 Receiving blankets
1 Pair of socks or mittens
1 Baby bottle
1 Stuff Toy (optional)
Pins & Scissors
Decorative Ribbons (as per your design)
Arrange diapers in pan as shown in pictures step-by-step
Should look like this when completed.
Make sure the gap between each diaper is equal.
choose appropriate size of rubber-bands, I used bigger ones
Now using the rubber-band, hold all the diapers together in place
like this; when inside pan
take out gently and should look like this
make two tiers, same process
Wrap each tire with ribbon/s.
Secure ribbon/s with pins;
these diapers will be used later so we don't use any kind of adhesive.
Fold the first receiving blanket in half
now roll it as shown in pictures
after rolling, secure it with pin
Place the blanket through the tire opening
this will be the front tire
attach blanket to back tire as shown in pictures
Pull both ends of the blanket (following the arrows)
to make sure the both tires are tight as well as the blanket.
Not too tight but firm. This will hold the entire bike.
Now take the second blanket and repeat same process of rolling.
When rolled, insert it through the front tire; this will be the handle.
Rolling a washcloth around baby bottle is optional;
it adds details to bike's headlight
Insert the bottle between handles.
Secure both handles together with small rubber band
and wrap a washcloth for pretty look.
Place a small thick sheet to give a firm look to the handles; *optional*
Insert a tissue in socks/mittens to have firm look
Attach socks to handles
Place the bibs over tire.
Final look should be as shown in pic 29
Now just place the rider on bike!!
We are done!!!!
