DD#2 is 39-1/2 weeks pregnant and we are eager for little Hazel to arrive, but there was one last thing we wanted to do. DD#2 wanted a moby wrap, which is basically just a long piece of fabric that is wrapped around you to hold your baby. They’re a little pricey. We figured we could make a couple of them for a fraction of the cost of just one. I bought a length of PFD cotton jersey from Dharma Trading. We cut off a section, tapered the ends, and hemmed the edges. Then came the fun part.
I’ve done very little dyeing, but I have all the supplies and I was happy to use them. I covered my kitchen with plastic because I’m messy, and I pulled out my book, “Color by Accident,” so I would have a recipe to follow.
She arranged the fabric in a plastic bin and I mixed up three colors. She poured it all in, and I was so afraid we had made a mistake!
We laughed and giggled and hoped for the best. After an hour I dumped it all in my washing machine and hoped it wouldn’t just all mix together and come out black. Happily, it came out pretty good. I can’t wait to see little Hazel snuggled up inside!
