Something I Made By Hand

This post is in response to Mama Kat’s assignment posted Tuesday, which was inspired by Texan Mama.  So here goes.  Prepare to be amazed.

I made these two items for a girlfriend’s baby shower.  Black Baby Shower 6-30-07 019 Black Baby Shower 6-30-07 020 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These two items have all my friends thinking I’m very crafty – which I’m really, truly not.  I do have all these fabulous ideas floating around in my head – but they never actually come out looking like I pictured.  These two things are pretty much the only crafty type things I’ve ever done that worked out okay.  Hmmm, that might be because I followed the directions . . . what do you think?

Have you guessed what they are yet?

Yup – that’s right.  It’s a diaper wreath and a diaper cake.

It actually didn’t take too long to assemble either one and I must say the guest of honor loved these items long after the party was over and the baby was born.

Of course, I guess technically, this isn’t something I personally made by hand – since I didn’t actually create the diapers and gee-gaws on it.  But I assembled it.  In my mind that equates to making it by hand.  At least I didn’t buy it fully assembled.  So that counts for something, right?

Oh, and by the way, if you would like to create one of these lovelies and have all your friends think you are Queen Crafty; here are the directions:
