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.
We don't have a baby yet so Curious George is modeling our new wrap. For some reason we decided to take this picture in the front yard so I was all "Hurry up and take it! Did you take it? Before the neighbors looks! Did you take it?!"
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)
