I want to make a wrap about 4.6 m long for carrying my kiddo.  The nice ones I see are over $150 (Didymos, Girasol, etc.) and it seems like a pretty easy thing to make.  When I go to the local fabric store though, I don't see any pretty handwoven cotton or cotton blends, only frumpy patterns.  Any suggestions?  I want bright, colorful stripes or something ya know?  Something like these http://www.pinkletinkbaby.com/GirasolPage.php
Has anyone made one of these before?  Thanks, hope I'm in the correct forum for this. Huh

Check out cloth table cloths in your housewears sections, Ross, TJ MAXX etc.  Seriously, no joke.  On the babywearer.com there is a whole topic on DIY tablecloth wraps, some of the mama's that have girasols, Didy's etc say that some of thier cheap tablecloths are equal to thier expensive wraps.  I made one out of a Martha Stewart everyday tablecloth found at K-Mart for $14, I cut it lengthwise in half and hemmed the raw edges, it's supportive, comfortable and my daughter prefers it over her other wraps, it's her 'lovie'.  Here is a picture of it.
