I have been looking into the Moby wraps for when our sweet little one comes. (in 3 1/2 months!!!) A Friend was sharing with me that she just bought fabric and made her own!? WHY hadn't I thought of that? So I started searching the web about how to make your own Moby type wrap! The original Moby runs about $40 bucks. I came across this thread today and I can just buy fabric and make my own for cheaper! Sounds like Walmart has the best deal on 100% cotton interlocking fabric & best of all it's a NO SEW project!!! Thought you might be interested in one too! ♥


Here is how to make & wrap it too! http://forum.baby-gaga.com/about492363.html

Both of these sites were VERY helpful!

Enjoy~ Janell

Hey girls:
a few nights ago I was going through all my favorite tutorials that I have come across over the last year and a half. I have had these on my "favorites" list for a while. Some I have made, but others are on my "To do" list! I typed them all up so that I could save them on my email incase our computer ever crashes! So, needless to say I REALLY thought you would enjoy looking through these and maybe even get inspired to make something too!? There are a lot of baby things, (I wonder why???) but there are some other fun stuff too...just scroll down and read through them! For those of you who don't sew there are a handful of fun no sew tutorials as well! Happy crafting!!!

Love, Janell
