How to make mini diapers as baby shower favors
Baby showers are happy events for the expectant parents. (baby girl and stork image by hannahfelicity from

A baby shower is a special event to celebrate that a little one is on the way. It is nice to have small favours as thank-you gifts for the guests that share in the party. Miniature diapers are a comical baby shower favour and conversation piece for the guests. The mini-diapers---which can be handmade---can be filled with candies or a piece of cellophane-wrapped fudge tied with a bow.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Pastel or white flannel or felt
  • 1/2-inch safety pins
  • Cloth scissors

  1. 1

    Draw a triangle on card stock or lightweight cardboard. The triangle should measure 2 1/2 inches at the top and 8 inches on either side ending in a point. Cut the pattern out.

  2. 2

    Place the cloth on to a work surface upside down. Trace around the triangle pattern with a pen or pencil.

  3. 3

    Cut out the triangular piece of cloth.

  4. 4

    Place the cloth triangle on to the work surface, wrong side out. The point should be at the bottom.

  5. 5

    Fold the pointed end of the cloth upward until it is overlapping the top of the cloth about a half an inch.

  6. 6

    Fold the sides of the cloth over to the middle with one point overlapping the other.

  7. 7

    Fold the top point back down inside of the mini-diaper. Pin the centre with a tiny safety pin. Hand sew the diaper to secure the front for an alternative to the small safety pin. A plastic novelty diaper pin can be glued or sewn to the centre.

  8. 8

    Fold in the bottom corners to form a leg hole. Fill with treats.
