Why Should You Consider Making A Diaper Cake

Flowers are beautiful, if they only lasted longer. Gift baskets are maybe way too common and ordinary. Yet, you'd like something stylish and practical.

The question is:

"What Do The New Parents Need The Most?"

Sleep! But if you can't give that, then - DIAPERS are the second best thing!

Why choose homemade baby gifts?

Sure, you could just go to the store and buy all that you need. But then how would you get the most unique baby gifts ever and save a few bucks while you're at it?

I suggest making diaper cakes. They make so cute, useful, and creative gifts. Most of all, they are so much fun to make! Browse below, and you'll see.

But before you start, make sure you know the family's preference for diaper - cloth diapers or disposable ones?

You Asked

How wide are the strips you use?

I find using 6 inches wide tulle spool great and comfortable. You can also cut your strips from tulle fabric, then make them about 6 inches wide as well.

Is there an online store to buy the elastic waist band? Is there a type of ribbon that is good to make it?

Satin ribbon is the best. And have you tried Etsy.com for the elastic?

Do you stretch out the elastic while you tie the strips?

I don't stretch the elastic particularly, only a bit. As I want the elastic waistband to be nicely covered with knots later when the tutu is worn.

How much would you say this costed... I was thinking about making some adult size ones for a breast cancer event?

Well, for the adult no sew tutu you need 100 yards of tulle in minimum. Of course, the amount depends on the length and fluffiness of the tutu skirt. Thus the price of the finished product depends on how much you pay for the tulle spools (or bolts). Google for prices. So, what you could do is make one as a prototype. Then you'll know the amount of tulle you'd like to use for one tutu and you can easily calculate the final cost.

The tutu turned out about 3-4 inches too big at the waist. What have I done wrong?

Occasionally the tutu can come out too big at the waist because the elastic is very stretchy, and it stretches out too much during the tulle strip knot adding process. The best way to fix it is to remove some tulle strip knots until the tutu is the right size.

I made the back fluffier than the front. If I took it all off the elastic and switched it to a ribbon would I still be able to make it fluffier in the back?

Certainly. The ribbon waistband offers more control over the fitting waist size and keeping your fluff in the right place. You can never stretch out a ribbon waist band with adding too many knots.

And if you ever should want to adjust the waist of a ribbon-waist tutu, then just add (or remove) some tulle knots on the ribbon. Just make sure you leave long enough ribbon tales from the beginning.
