    Default What size is your baby wrap?

    What size in cms/metres is your baby wrap/carrier?

    I am trying to make one.

    I thought that until our local spotlight was hit by that freak torando. I got 5 metres of a stetch knit for under $20. I was hoping that would be enough.

    Hey I made my own wrap carrier with Jersey stretch cotton,
    length 6m (but could get away with 5 I just wanted to make sure as I have a bit of a tummy) Width 50cm - the cotton I bought came in 150cm width so I just cut in in three lengthways and hey presto three carriers! Didn't even need to hem the fabric as jersey stretch doesn't fray like this: http://wearyourbaby.com/Default.aspx?tabid=121
    But converted the measurements to metric cost me $6 per wrap

    I 'made' mine with 5m of stretch cotton jersey. I just asked the woman from spotlight to cut me off 5m and I didn't alter the width at all. It cost $11 I didn't really have to 'make' anything, I just used the piece of material the shop assistant cut, and then looked up different tying methods
