Can't get enough of movies? Then head over to Mumsnet Films!
I'm trying to do the maths on making my own 'moby' type baby sling.Figuring I need about 5 metres of fabric to make two slings.Which fabric is best/most economical/doesn't shrink?Is it worth it given that I can buy second hand on ebay for about £25-£30?
Have a look herewww.rookiemoms.com/how-to-make-a-moby-wrap/I expect the fabric you buy will be far nicer than ready made ones.
ha, that's the site i was looking at. it says to use muslin, but the moby slings seems to have more stretch 100% cotton.
I made my own Coorie for BabyDragon [wistful sigh]
what material did you use? was it cheaper than buying one?
I made it with bog standard fleece. It probably was cheaper but also it satisfied my "I could make that" need
oh hadn't thought of fleece. might be too warm for an april baby but i'll have a look. and yes, i know that need.
Yes, DD was early Feb
I made a ring sling to wear to a wedding! It matched my dress and was easy to make.DD was at her happiest in a ring sling.
Ok so I finally got started on this and am going for a non stretch sling as hoping it will last longer.I'm using a lightweight denim and have had to join two lengths of fabric to get a decent length.Should I taper the ends? What sort of angle/length of taper?
