new wrap material for homemade.

I asked DH if I could buy some new material yesterday and he said sure. The onsaburg I have I did a rough hemming job and its fraying in a way that I'm having to cut string every week (not to mention I'm tired if the drab beige color). Rather than having to do the work of dying the onsnaburg, I decided to get a denim kind of fabric accented with little flowers.

After the lady cut 6 yards (my onsnaburg is 5.25 yards and I wanted more length)... She printed printed price tag and said.. "Are you sure?" So I had to text DH after she told me it was gonna be $83!

I was so worried about getting something cute and durable that I didn't even check the price. To my amazement, DH said to get it! :eek:

Knowing i could have spent that much on a premade........ It's gonna be soo cute! Biggrin

Just looked closer at the fabric today and realized that it's wide enough to get 2 wraps out if it! Making the cost much more worth it. Its about $41.50 per wrap. Smile

DH says I should sell the second one (which I was already thinking I'd do before he said it) then said I should start making some with the intent to sell them and do local how to wrap classes. Lol. I get the impression he's impressed by this new found talent I have (not that I think I'm very good at it). Lol

Finished the wrap (#1) last night. Tested it out this morning. I am in love... Again. Biggrin It's actually long enough to use on the front.. Which is perfect, cause she's got a cold and is back on the nebulizer. Sad

Sorry the pics are so big... I'm on my tablet and can't figure out how to make them smaller.

In that second pic, I took her into the bathroom for a better pic and she saw her tooth brush and insisted on using it. Lol

Don't know if you can see in this pic very clearly... But I got a matching thread for the seam and did a scallop stitching. I'm proud of the work I did. Smile

Looks great! I've got a Mr. O (osnaburg) headed here that I'm hoping will make a decent enough wrap for my local babywearing group's lending library. Smile
