I know I've said it before, but a stretchy wrap is still our favorite
way to carry a tiny baby. With baby #3 on the way, we decided it was
time for a new stretchy wrap just for him/her! Two years ago we made one
with a really pretty center panel (tutorial here), but it turns out we're just not really red people (and Husband isn't really feeling the flower power) so we decided to tone it down a bit this time around.
This is one of the easiest DIY projects you will ever take on. If you skip the middle marker patch, it's completely no-sew!
We watched the Joann Fabric ads and coupons until we found the perfect storm last week - knit fabrics 50% plus a 20% off purchase coupon! It was such a good deal we decided to go with two new wraps (and each piece of fabric is wide enough to make multiple wraps so we will end up with extras for my sister).
What you need:
- 6 yards of knit fabric (go for one that's mostly cotton, polyester gets hot!)
- small scrap of fabric for the middle marker (optional)
