moby wrap diy
I apologize in advance for these awful pictures. Baby is here as you can see.
Right before he was born my mom went into a sewing frenzy and among the things she made for us was this sweet moby wrap- normally $40-50 in stores.
Although I didn't make it myself, of all the things she made for us it is the one thing that I could have made myself. Originally we looked up a tutorial found here.
Basically you need 6 yards of t-shirt type fabric 30" wide, but because most of these fabrics come 60" wide we just bought 3 yards and cut the fabric length-wise down the middle.
All that is left to do is to sew these two pieces of fabric together to make it 6 yards long and surge around the edges, or zigzag stitch if you dont have a surger. Make sure to have the center seam very secure so baby doesnt bust through.
