My project is a keepsake baby carriage that I'm calling a "Cadillac Carriage". Why? Because, although I've done many of these on a smaller scale, this is the largest one I've done so far, so it's really the "Cadillac" of all the others.
Just so you know, this has given me the B-L-U-E-S!!! I thought it would be easy enough but when I couldn't find a proportionately-sized box I actually had to cut and piece boxes together to get the size I needed. I think it's come along pretty good -- and it was still kind of fun to put together; here's it is and you can click on each picture for a better view:
The "CR" on the picture of the carriage above are the baby's initials. Here's a view of the opposite side of the box that has a pocket to hold the card:
This picture shows the front of the box with a pocket holding baby wash cloths:
And the back of the box has a small pocket holding a set of rattles:
To give you an idea on how large this carriage is, excluding what's in the pockets, the inside contains a bottle of Drift Liquid Detergent, pampers, a bottle/food warmer, 2-sets of jammies, 4 outfits, baby clothes hangers, a comb/brush set, diaper rash ointment, medicine dispensers, tinny little nail files and nail clipper, thermometer, formula dispensing cup, baby wipes, diaper waste bags, pacifier wipes, nose inhalers; Johnson's lotion, soap, shampoo and powder; petroleum jelly... and a couple of other things I need to "squeeze" in somewhere...lol!!! I usually call this a "Needful Things" carriage because some of these items are things young mothers may not receive in the gift-giving from others... lol!
After the contents have been used, I hope my neice will find this a useful keepsake item in the baby's room to store little things she may need right at hand.
Well, I'm off to finish up as much as I can tonight before I have to go to the shower tomorrow, so I'll probably not see you until I get back home!
Hope you enjoyed my project!!! In the meantime...
Hugs, love you all, and...
I'll be seeing you!!!
