    Default 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!

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

    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.

    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).

    Finished the wrap (#1) last night. Tested it out this morning. I am in love... Again. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
