You gotta get yourself one of these!

(If you have a baby of course!)

There was a gal in our ward (Melinda) who would carry her baby around in a home-made wrap. When I knew I'd have a baby this year at TITP, I thought that could be quite beneficial. I just didn't know how to do it (you can't carry a Pioneer baby around in a Baby Bjorn now can you?). Amazingly, one day in my blog feeds popped up directions from the Ten Cow Chick on how to do a fabric baby wrap! Whoopee!

Why look, here is a picture of Melinda with her baby at TITP! She should be a volunteer!

Here we are. Worked great.

My fabric is just some muslin. It's a little long - probably more like 6 yards (so I can shorten it if it starts to bug me), and slightly narrow, probably about 23" wide (I just ripped a big piece of muslin down the middle, then stitched my short ends together -- I haven't even hemmed it yet, maybe I won't! I was a little nervous about ripping all that fabric considering I've never put baby in this type of implement).

The Ten Cow Chick says 5 yards by 30", which would probably be just about right, I just didn't take time or have the supplies to get it right quickly (I did this at about 7 a.m. this morning before going to TITP).

I also tied mine opposite of the way she does it as to have my knot in front.
