Good evening I hope you have all had a good weekend. If like us and your weather has been terrible I hope you have managed to do some crafting while having to stay indoors. I was baby sitting for our two grandsons last night, they are no trouble, they know not to play granny up. We watched Ice Age 2 Andrew loves this film. I never seem to sit down long enough to watch a whole DVD these days so it was lovely sitting on the sofa with Andrew snuggled up beside me.
I have a Nappy Cake to show you. This is for stock as I have got a few orders waiting for the babies too arrive, so I decided to do one ready to go. Had a problem with the nappies as the new packet seems that nappies are slightly smaller than before, but hey ho they are designed to do up to 13lbs so they will have to do. I just wish they wouldn't keep changing them.
Any way in this cake I have put in.
18 size 2 nappies
2 wash products
1 sleep suit
2 pairs scratch mitts
2 pairs socks
As you will see by the photographs the nappies are round the outside of the gift box, which is placed onto a 15in cake board. I then put a Muslin nappy folded in four over the box and nappies, I tie three different thicknesses of different ribbons, place the teddy in the middle then wrap it up in cling, tie the pulled up cling with thin satin ribbon give the cling a hair cut as I say (hate to see lots of bunched up cling being left) and that's it.
Sorry the middle picture shows the top of the cake lumpy I did sort all this, the box lid ended up
being taped down and the muslin pulled tight, but guess who forgot to retake the photo yes ME.
To late but it is flatter now.
That's it for tonight. Need an early night this getting to bed at gone 1o'clock is no good, getting to old.
