So after I drag myself out of bed and then off the couch I decided that I should make it at my parents house, as it probably wouldn’t survive a trip in my car. So hot mess and all, I went to Target and Rite Aid (I had some killer coupons for Diapers!).
What I bought:
2 36 Jumbo Packages of Diapers
1 set of 3 bibs
1 Bath Towel
1 Pair of Socks
1 Dishwasher Basket
1 set of 3 bottles
1 package of Ribbon.
1 Zip tie
2 Wire Hangers
1 Paper towel center
Rubber bands (I’d suggest ones that aren’t dried out and old)
So this is what I did.
I googled ‘ Diaper Tricycle Frugal’ and it found the Tricycle that Frugal with a Flourish (Thanks Jess!!!!!!) had de-constructed.
I ended up following the steps pretty close to how Jess has discovered hers was made however I did have some changes.
When making the back axel, instead of putting napkins over the ends, I used bottles. Which required me to cut the tube. I then stuffed the bottles in the ends. (I did attempt to 'tape' the bottles on, but that was a wasted effort.)
The last modification I did was instead of using ribbon to connect the front to the back, I actually used a White Hanger and curled the end around the paper towel roll. Basically, I looked at the instructions and said, ‘Yeah, I’m not patient enough for that.’ So this was my idea. I did like it. I thought the wire running back made it look more like a tricycle.
Once that was finished all I had to do was put a bib on the front.
I didn’t put the pacifier on the front, because honestly, I forget to pick on up at the store. I know, fail.
If you have any questions, let me know.
I would also suggest not making this when it’s really humid as my diapers got kind of got funky.
Take it easy.
