Wow I am going to make 2 of these for diapers. I really like that these look so cute and make the diapers look neater than the just laying out. I am not crazy about diaper stackers so this is just right. Such a simple tutorial to follow with pictures too. This is a great way to make them to match your nursery decor.

This is such a great idea, I love the cloud appliqu and also added a sun, raindrop and rainbow on mine on each side. The instructions are really detailed and so makes it a perfect pattern for beginners to follow, I didn't get stuck at all. The only problem is that there are so many photos in the tutorial that it took a very long time for the webpage to load but believe me it is worth it, I then copied it into word with the pictures which was easier. The added bonus of this pattern is that it can be used as a storage box for toys later on.

This is adorable! Such a cute way to make diaper storage a fun part of your child's nursery decor.
