So 2 years ago I made a diaper cake for my bff baby shower.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330862.msg3821403#msg3821403

Now she is having a little boy and had a mini shower to get some boy stuff. I didn't want to make another cake so.....
I was browsing Pinterest and saw a diaper tricycle. I was inspired.

My girlfriend and her husband are avid bike riders so I decided to make a diaper motorcycle.



This is the front of the bike. The handle bars are a fleece blanket and socks. The headlight is a bottle and the front says Stud Muffin (bib).



Here is a side view. I rolled the diapers and secured them with a rubberband to make tires. I tied a blue ribbon around them then cut off the rubberbands.
Thanks for looking Smiley

*I rolled a diaper up and secured it with a rubberband. Then I continued to wrap diapers around it until it was the size "tire" I wanted. I tied it with a ribbon to hold the tired shape. I made two "wheels" then I tied a piece of ribbon to each to hold them together.
For the handle bars I rolled up a recieving blanket and shoved (I do mean shoved lol) it through the front wheel. Then I set the baby bottle on top of the front tire. I pulled the blanket (handle bars) over the bottle and secured it with a rubberband (then a ribbon). I simply put the socks on each end to make the grips on the handle bars.
For the seat I just laid a couple bibs on the tires.
Hope this makes sense Smiley

Great idea. So unusual and a lot more fun than the usual diaper cake.

This is a great work. This is completely looking like a bike i.e. a cute bike. I usually just have seen diaper cakes this is the first time I am watching a diaper bike. Great work.
