I am so excited about the wrap that I made!! Here I am trying to model it with a stuffed bear as my baby. It looks a little funny because of my big ‘ole pregnant belly, but you get the idea:
And then I think this is a real back carry… I was just playing with ways to tie it:
Here is an up-close of the center fabric:
It was so easy! I just bought 5 yards of chocolate cotton fabric, and then a yard of the center fabric (I totally didn’t need a whole yard, but would rather have too much than not enough). I cut the chocolate fabric in half and double hemmed the edges. I also rounded the ends for a little bit more finished look, and hemmed those too, of course. I sewed the bottom edge of the chinese fabric on as I was hemming the bottom of the chocolate, and then went back and fixed up the sides and top of the chinese fabric last.
Total cost was about $12 (that’s only counting half of the price of the 5 yards of chocolate fabric, since I can make another wrap out of the other half). Not bad considering that most wraps like that sell for $40-$80!
I can’t wait for Baby Hutch to get here so I can carry him everywhere in it!! 🙂
