How to Make Your Own Wrap

I got to thinking when I posted the contest that I did not share with you my latest craft. You can make your own wrap and save alot of money.

I love trying different ways to wear your baby. I saw wraps online but didn't want to spend the money. Then I stumbled on this site.  After reading pre made ones I choose to make mine 22" by 5'. When I make another one it will be 22 to 25" by 5 1/2 yards. I was able to make my wrap for $5.00! Can't beat that! Thanks Walmarts dollar table!  I got 2 baby carriers out of it. Kept one gave one away. Plus I made 2 childrens wraps with the leftovers and cut the 5 ' in half. So the small ones were 2 1/2' long.

After you get done making it there are many sites to show you how to wear your baby.  You can wear them tummy to tummy, facing out, on your hip, and on your back. Here are some I have found...
