Making wraps?
Any of you mamas ever made your own wrap?

Yes, with 5 yds stretch cotton jersey, there are lots of tutorials on the web

Yes-it works very well! I used 5 1/2 yards of a stretchy cotton jersery from, cut it in half (44" wide cut down to 22" wide) and had two wraps instatly! It helps to taper the ends for tying, and sewing a little ribbon in the middle is helpful, too!

Yes, I used 5 yds stretch cotton jersey it works very well. I got my fabric from Joanns with a coupon and it only cost me $7.

I made a flannel (so slightly stretchy but not much) wrap. I am planning on making a jersey one if I can't find my sleepy wrap for this baby. I used 5.5 yards (I'm a size 16) and it was MORE than plenty.

Re: Making wraps?
Are you wanting to make a stretchy wrap or a woven? You can make a woven out of Osnaburg. You can usually find that at Jo-Ann. Also a gauze material could be used to make a more woven type wrap.

I am currently wearing my 8 day old DS in a homemade Moby. I got 5 yards of jersey cotton and sewed it with a little help from my grandmother. Very comfortable and easy.

Not yet. Planning on making myself a shortie from Osnaburg. Currently trying to decide how I want to dye it. Thinking a bright red so that it's eye catching when I wear it. :)

I just searched to see what the width of other wraps were, and then made it 5 feet long, with tapered ends for ease of tying.
