    Default Homemade Baby carrier madness! :)

    Today at Walmart I found this awesome fabric for $1.50/yd! It is perfect for summer wrap style carrying.



    I cut it in half lengthwise because it was 60". I did five yards even though the real Moby is 6... Just too much fabric for summer!

    I tested it on a build a bear. They are about 18" so close to newbor
    n size!



    and I did this K'tan made out of tshirts.

    Instructions: Schamelot: No-Sew Baby K'tan Wrap Style Carrier from Three Men's T-shirts
    mine: it's hard to get a good read on this because it needs the weight of a baby to stretch it properly and a stuffed animal doesn't cut it!


    and the back. I hadn't spread it out properly yet but you get the idea.



    Those two were no-sew. I think I am going to use the other length of thin fabric to make this one:

    I like the thinness of the first one. I wore my moby today and it did end up hot!

    Awesome!! I have carried Madelyn a few times in the Ergo already, and thankfully it hasn't been hot at all... of course I've been inside well air conditioned stores! Hummmm, I might get a little sweaty at the zoo.

    I have to take the kids to the pool every day so I definitely needed something super light. I think I'll prefer something sturdier for indoors but for outside, I am loving that fabric!

    I think I may have to try the K'tan one. Even if it doesn't work out I would only be out a few dollars!
