You could also do this project with several cloth nappies in place of the towels.

What you need

5 Green Face washers
4 Pink Face washers
2 White bath towels
1mt Ribbon
Pins
1 Wire coat hanger

Instructions

We also have instructions for Towel and Diaper Cakes as well as a cute little Bunny gift basket and a Diaper Stork Delivery.

Wheels:
Take 1 face washer, fold it into quarters (length ways) and roll it up tightly. Secure with a rubber band. Wrap a second face washer around the rolled up wheel and begin winding it around. Secure with pins.

Handle:
Fold the face washer diagonally to form a long length. Secure with pins.

Base:
Fold two towels into quarters – length ways. Roll one up to form a coil. Add then add the second towel and continue winding it around the first coil. This becomes your solid base. Shape it into an oval with your hands. Don’t secure the outer layer just yet as you tuck the wire underneath that layer.

Canopy:
Take a wire coat hanger and bend it into a circle. You can remove the wire hook with pliers or just tuck it underneath the base. The wire will support the towel.

Slide the wire over the base. Wrap the outer layer of the base coil over the wire and continue to wrap the base coil. Secure with pins.

Drape the hand towel over the wire hanger and tuck it under the base. Secure the towel to the wire with pins by forming a hem around the wire.

Decorating:

Add the handle by securing it with a few pins. Add the wheels to sides and secure with pins.

Tie a large ribbon around the base. Add any other embellishments you like, such as lace, flowers etc. You are only limited by your imagination.

We finished it off by just adding a teddy bear, but you could add baby supplies or just about anything.

You could place the pram onto a cake base, or cardboard base for stability when transporting it.
