Homemade Moby Wrap

I wanted a moby wrap ... loved the moby wrap and figured out a way to do one a bit cheaper too! After doing some research I found out from several different sites that you just needed 6.5 yards of jersey knit fabric (60" wide). Then all the directions said to cut straight down the center of the fabric and you're good to go! I have been DYING for Lizzie to get old enough for me to be able to do this (without my husband panicking about her suffocating ... all the websites said to wait until the baby is 3 months old to have enough head support to be okay) ... and so last week I finally got to go!

I picked out something that was a lighter color to help with the sun and heat of the summer, and I loved the black print on the fabric too! I got home, folded the fabric in half and five minutes later ... had my own moby wrap! Love quick & easy projects like that!

I picked up jersey knit fabric from Hobby Lobby for $4.99 a yard ... I meant to get 6.5 yards, but only got 6 instead. And since I cut it down the center, I got two for less than the one would have cost from the website! $30 for TWO wraps isn't bad!


  1. I love it! I might have to make me one of those! You look great! Sure miss ya! Love your long hair and headband...I am thinking Lizzie looks a lot like Hunter...don't you think? She has changed a lot already!


I love comments! Thanks for sharing! :)
