These moby wraps are a must have for any new mom! You can snuggle your baby right up to you (which they love) and you can still move around and use BOTH your hands (which you will love)!!! And as an added bonus, they are fairly easy to make. Can you sew in a straight line? Can you find the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine? Then you can make this wrap. Don’t feel like sewing at all???? See the very bottom*** 🙂
You will need:
- 3 yards of knit fabric. I prefer a cotton poly blend. Usually 60/40 but any knit will do.
- 1 cotton fat quarter or a half yard of fabric
Step 1: Lay out fabric lengthwise.
Step 2: Cut along the fold to make 2, 3 yard pieces.
Step 3: Cut off about 4 inches of the salvage end (the other side, not the folded one) to make it about 22”.
Step 4: Sew the short ends RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER so you now have a 6 yard piece of knit.
Step 5: If you are using a fat quarter, ignore this step. If you purchased a half yard of fabric, cut in half to make an 18” by 22” piece. **Here I have 1 yard of fabric that I’ve cut into 4 usable cotton front panels.**
Step 6: Make sure the panel fits onto the wrap. You can pin this here if you want to. RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER.
Step 7: Sew across the top (the long side) with the RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER.
Step 8: Flip inside out so the cotton panel is covering the back of the knit seam.
Step 9: Sew all around the cotton panel with a zigzag or other decorative stitch.
Step 10: Wrap up your cute little baby! Or give it as a gift to your new mom friend. Happy Baby Wearing!
How To Tie A Moby Wrap Tutorial and safety instructions!!!
***Don’t feel like sewing at all?? You’ve got 2 options…
1 – Visit my Etsy shop and buy one from me! You won’t be sorry.
2 – Buy 6 yards of fabric instead of 3, cut along the fold, forget how awesome the cotton panel is (it is cool but certainly not necessary), and then share with a friend! Because now you have two Moby wraps 🙂
