For my best friend’s baby shower, I told her I’d make her a golf bag out of diapers. I had seen some online to order, but I wanted hers to match the color scheme she selected. Also, I love making anything because it’s much more special.
I started with an idea and sketched out a plan. Once I came up with this, I made my list and hit the stores. I shopped at Joann’s, Michael’s and Walmart.
First step was to drill a pilot hole through the center of the large dowel.
Next, I took 2- 8″ cardboard cake rounds and drilled the screw with washer through the bottom.
Now that I had the base, I could get the fun part started!
I rolled up the diapers around the base until I got to the edge. I used a couple different diaper brands, Huggies inside, Pampers outside. I like the Pampers size 1 on the outside since they are plain white and soft.
Keep stacking until you reach the top! I tied a thick satin ribbon and then a smaller grosgrain ribbon for contrast of color and texture. I left a little bit of length so that I could tie the “handle” on the back.
I used thinner dowel for the “golf clubs” with socks for the tops. I stuffed the matching sock inside to maintain the shape.
The wheels are rolled up washcloths. I used gift wrap ribbon to thread around and create that wheel look.
Around the top, I added a wash towel and pacifiers with ribbon.
On the other side, I tied up a onesie to make a little sack. Inside, I added baby shampoo, baby powder, baby lotion, etc.
Overall, I love the way it turned out.
