Show and Tell: Stretchy Wrap

I don't know if there could be a easier project. In fact, this is so easy, I'm not sure if you can really call it a "project." I'm sure you've seen those stretch wraps out there. They retail for around 40 to 50 bucks. I had bought one, but I lent it out and haven't seen it since. I have a Ergo carrier I LOVE but it's a bit awkward for around the house. I decided I needed a stretchy carrier for at home. I wanted something that was comfortable to sit in.

I didn't want to fork over the 40 to 50 bucks, so I decided to make one myself.

To make your own stretchy wrap, you will need to get a jersey fabric. You often find them in the apparel fabric area. You will want to find something that is stretchy but solid. You will need 5.5-6 yards of fabric. Then you just cut it down the middle "hot dog" wise. Ta Da! You now have two stretchy wraps. No need to hem since jersey fabric just rolls up on itself. There's a hundred tutorials online that show how to wrap it.

So with my coupon, I spent $35.00 for my 6 yards of fabric. Two wraps from just that 6 yards!
