Candy Coated diapers!

Candy Coated? You made diapers with candy on them?

No, not exactly. Candy Coated is an amazing artist whose work was most recently on display here in Philadelphia on the Eakins Oval. Check out this video!

Museum Without Walls™: AUDIO – Magic Carpet by artist Candy Coated from Association for Public Art on Vimeo.

She had a show in 2013 at The Philadelphia Museum of Art that showed children’s fancy dress costumes re-imagined in Candy’s Wonderland! Do check out the slideshow and videos from the exhibit on that page!

I was lucky enough to score some of her silk screened fabric scraps before she moved to California. She gave me permission to use these scraps to make some cloth diapers and clothes for kids.

Check out the first diapers I made with some scraps:

Some of them are still available in my shop.

Thank you, Candy! I am so inspired!
