Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is a very simple, no sew pattern with video instructions.

Pattern Description:

As seen on Martha Stewart. Inspired by the Round Topsy Turvy Diaper Cake, the Square Topsy Turvy also accommodates the standard size 40 inch blanket on the bottom layer. In the 24:34 minute video, I'll show you how to use several different baby products to wrap the cake. This design requires fewer diapers but stands slightly higher than the round Topsy Turvy design.

Watch whenever you like and as many times as you'd like. There is no damage done to the baby products with this design.

*****Embellishment options not included in the instructions.*****

This Topsy Turvy Diaper Cake PDF pattern includes clear step-by-step instructions with illustrations to construct your pattern and create the simple no-sew framework. There is also link to a video tutorial to stuff and wrap your diaper cake.

Once your pattern is complete, it should take less than 10 minutes to trace the pattern on the framework, cut it out and tape it together. They're remarkably sturdy once the blankets and diapers are added and the pattern folds together small enough to fit in your file cabinet for your next diaper cake gift.
