Baby on a Budget: home-made Moby wrap

So while we're here in Bolivia I decided I could take the extra time on my hands that would usually be spent watching TV, to learn a few things. A few years ago my mom gave me a sewing machine and I have been wanting to learn how to sew..... so that's exactly what I'm doing and I am so excited about it. My brother and his wife are currently expecting their first child and so my first project is a home-made Moby wrap. I love love love Moby wraps and anything like them. They start at around $40 and go way up from there but when I look at them I can't help but think how simple it is. The fabric on most is just a cotton jersey knit. My friend emailed me the dimensions of hers and off I went! I purchased the fabric at the local mercado (outdoor market) and started my lessons with a very kind Bolivian native.

Now let me just say you don't have to sew anything if you don't want to for the Moby wrap but I can be kind of a perfectionist sometimes and I want it to look professional. We cut out the pattern and started sewing. First we just folded over the edges and did a straight-stitch (I think that's what it's called) to enforce the ends and then we surged over that. It looks great and I can't wait to give it to my sister-in-law when we get back.

I also made one for myself... I know, I know.... I don't need it right now but I like saving money and this will save me money down the line.

Have any of you made a wrap? What fabric did you use and do you think it's worth doing it yourself?

I'll post pictures of the finished product soon!
