My First-Ever DIAPER CAKE!!!

I'm going to my friend's baby shower tomorrow and wanted to take her something fun. I've seen so many ideas and versions of diaper cakes out there, but had never tried it. I chose this design above after watching about 4 YouTube videos, because I already had the tools to make it. And, since I'm a sewer, my design HAD to include fabric! : ) Not too bad for my first try. All in all, the whole thing cost me about $11.00 total, including diapers.
I made rosettes out of baby washcloths and rolled up some hand-stenciled onesies I had made.
I had made these adorable cloth baby shoes out of ikea burp cloths because I had just adored the fabric! You can find the FREE pattern and tutorial for these cloth shoes at Stardust Shoes HERE.  
This adorable fish bath mitt from Target fit great at the top with more baby washcloths tucked in around him at the top.
The interior support structure of my cake at the bottom is a package of Huggies wipes, and at the top a  baby bottle. 
It all held together pretty good, and I decided to display it on a glass plate stand. Now, to only get it there tomorrow! Congratulations, Kristen, on your new baby girl!!!
