Pattern Booklet Description

Create a beautiful baby gift that doubles as the centerpiece for a baby shower. Soft and cuddly crocheted toys, bib, booties, edgings, bottle covers and more are combined with purchased cloth and disposable diapers (called “nappies” in Europe) to create a gorgeous tiered cake that will be the highlight of a shower.

This colorful cake is made by first arranging about 85 disposable diapers. Then the cake is “frosted” with crochet-trimmed baby blankets, crochet baby toys, bibs, bottle covers, booties, tiny crocheted roses and as many purchased and crocheted baby products as you wish to add.
