DIY "Moby" Wrap Tutorial
My little lady is 2 years old now, and too mobile and heavy to carry in any sort of wrap. She enjoys the Kelty pack only because she's carried high enough over our shoulders to not miss out on anything.
I've seen a lot of my friends with infants using this style of wrap- the Moby Wrap.
Isn't that sweet?! When my friend had her baby boy, I immediately knew what I was going to give her. Since these wraps seemed a bit spendy for what they actually are, I decided to make my own.
Here's all you need. Pencils ready...
~5-6 yards of fabric (I prefer jersey knit)
That's it! It's super easy, and my friends have gotten a TON of use out of them from church, to parks, to getting things done at home.
Step 1: Fold fabric in half lengthwise ("hotdog fold" for you educators out there)
Step 2: Cut along fold to make one looooong strip of up to 30" wide fabric.
The edges don't fray with the jersey knit (but do roll a bit), and it stretches nicely as you're doing the wrapping.
