Diaper Carriage for Jonah
by Casie S.
This is a diaper carriage made for a friends shower. The baby's name will be Jonah so we tried to follow a whale theme. I purchased an 84 pack of pampers size 1 and used approximately half of them.
1 size 13 mens shoe box
Size 1 pampers
2 swaddling blankets
Remnant fleece for lining inside of shoe box
1 12 in brass hoop (canopy)
1 sheet (12x18) plastic canvas for canopy and handle
2 blue feather boas (approx 5 yards)
Diaper pins (8 total)
4 zip ties
1 strand white Christmas lights
Wheels (made 4): 7 rolled pampers secured with rubber bands and 1 additional diaper to wrap around the outside of wheel. Secured with a wide blue ribbon and hot glue then wrapped each side of wheel with a blue feather boa. Each wheel was then secured to a cardboard base with a zip tie from underneath.
We lined inside of shoebox with batting then brown fleece. Folded one swaddling blanket and wrapped around the outside of box. Secured blanket with straight pins and clips.
12 in Brass hoop cut in half, plastic canvas secured to hoop with white curly ribbon on both front and back (front part of canopy was approx two inches longer than back). We then stitched the sides of canvas into the box with brown thread in a few places to secure it.
Covered canopy with diapers and secured with white curly ribbon. Lined inside of canopy with white batting and hot glue. Placed second swaddling blanket over the top of diapers on canopy and secured with diaper pins and straight pins. Added big bow to back of stroller and secured it to diaper pin with a pipe cleaner.
Used a 1x 12 in remnant piece of plastic canvas from canopy, folded in half and stitched closed with white ribbon. Then secured to corners of box with thread and covered with a piece of fleece and hot glue.
Finishing touches: Placed carriage base onto wheels (never secured it so it would be easier to transport). Added baby items into box including a framed ultrasound picture. Covered base with white Christmas lights and tulle.
