Baby showers are happy events for the expectant parents.

A baby shower is a special event to celebrate that a little one is on the way. It is nice to have small favors as thank-you gifts for the guests that share in the party. Miniature diapers are a comical baby shower favor and conversation piece for the guests. The mini-diapers—which can be handmade—can be filled with candies or a piece of cellophane-wrapped fudge tied with a bow.

Step 1

Draw a triangle on card stock or light-weight cardboard. The triangle should measure 2 1/2 inches at the top and 8 inches on either side ending in a point. Cut the pattern out.

Step 2

Place the cloth on to a work surface upside down. Trace around the triangle pattern with a pen or pencil.


Step 3

Cut out the triangular piece of cloth.

Step 4

Place the cloth triangle on to the work surface, wrong side out. The point should be at the bottom.

Step 5

Fold the pointed end of the cloth upward until it is overlapping the top of the cloth about a half an inch.


Step 6

Fold the sides of the cloth over to the middle with one point overlapping the other.

Step 7

Fold the top point back down inside of the mini-diaper. Pin the center with a tiny safety pin. Hand sew the diaper to secure the front for an alternative to the small safety pin. A plastic novelty diaper pin can be glued or sewn to the center.

Step 8

Fold in the bottom corners to form a leg hole. Fill with treats.


Use cloth that matches your baby shower theme decorations. You can use paper napkins for your mini diaper baby shower favors.
