Someones getting the BIGGEST treat for Halloween.. A BABY BOY...I made a diaper bike for their shower...
Items needed... 2 bibs, 2 pkgs. of 40, . Sz.3, =18 to 23 pounds, diapers. Baby booties, Curling ribbon, 3 receiving blankets, 1 baby bottle, 1 Teddy Bear, 1 pr. of baby shoes, 1 baby wash cloth,1 Empty paper towel roll, 2 Empty toilet paper rolls, rubber bands. HINT: Shop the dollar store for smaller items.
Wheels, I use a frying pan to line my diapers up in a roll, side by side, adding 25 diapers to each wheel, inserting the tp roll in the middle, securing it with a rubber band. A strip of wide ribbon around the wheel, hides the rubber band. You will make 3 wheels. And take out the tp rolls from 2.
Rolling the receiving blanket tightly & firmly in a long strip, I use a pair of hemostats, to pull it through the paper towel roll. This is the back AXLE for the bike, so 2 wheels will be on here.
Forming the bike.... The 2 rear wheels will be on the AXLE (paper towel roll) The Front wheel still has the tp roll in it holding it all steady. Then secure this TIGHTLY with a rubber band. You will not see it, it will be tucked in, hiding in the front tp roll.
Handle Bars...Take another receiving blanket, rolling it firmly & tightly, Add it into the front diaper near the axle. Lay the bib (fender) over the front wheel. Wrap the washcloth around the bottle & set it onto the top of the bib on top of the front wheel. That's your headlight. Pull your receiving blanket up over it all & secure it in place with a rubber band. The nipple will be cradled into the seat of the bike. I add the last receiving blanket in there, cradled on the rear axle, for the bear to sit on.
Details Details...Nows the fun part. The booties slide easily over the end of the receiving blanket to form the handle grips. Add ribbon accordingly, You have your bike made. Just sit the bear in his seat...
I love MUMMY n MUMMY loves ME...You can dress your bear in anything you wish..He's ready to ride into the shower...
Use the second bib for the rear fender, I use the biggest one back there, it hides the Axel from view.....Awww..Grandmas lil pumpkin!
I even added a mask, it IS a Halloween baby after all.
He's just the HIT of the shower! Happy Halloween!

      I'm SO sorry. I MEANT 30.00 the diapers cost 12.00 @ a dollar store. And I had some left over. I HAD the bear it was bought at a flea market for $2.00. EVERYTHING is from a dollar store, keeping the cost low. I made the mask from a piece of cardboard, glitter, & yarn ..for pennies. I sell them for 45.00 to 50.00. Thanks for all the questions. I should have explained it better. But when I tried adding the decimal point, it didn't accept it. I've edited it now. You can look at my boards on here... or Pinterest. Done N Done or Git er Done... There are a few more I've made & more ideas for them. :)

      It's a onesie.= A one piece. I found it at a thrift shop. It was like brand new. I find hardly worn baby garments at thrift shops all the time. I washed it & ironed it out.
