No-Sew “Fauxby” Wrap

Fauxby Wrap Title

Since I’m pregnant I’ve been looking for ways to save money on all the things I will need/want for the baby. One thing I’ve heard is good to have is a Moby Wrap. After going to the store and seeing how much they cost, I decided against registering for one, but rather took a friend’s advice to make my own. I went on a hunt for a “Fauxby” Wrap tutorial and came across Rookie Moms website. Their directions looked easy enough, so I set off for the fabric store!

At the store I purchased 5 yards of a 4% spandex, 96% cotton knit fabric. (I couldn’t find 5% and 95%, but the fabric still seemed stretchy enough.) It cost me a little under $30 for the fabric.

When I got home, I laid out the fabric folded in half.

Then I cut along the fold.

And then I was done! I now have not one, but two “Fauxby” Wraps to use when my little cupcake arrives! And, honestly, the hardest part of the whole project was finding the fabric!

There is a good video on the Rookie Moms site that shows how to put on the Moby Wrap- I’ll definitely need to use this when baby girl is here, but I tried it out (even over my pregnant belly) and it looks like my “Fauxby” Wrap is going to work just fine!

Happy crafting!

    • From what I can tell so far, I don’t think so. The edges roll a little bit since the fabric is stretchy, but that’s it! If you are worried that they will fray, you could always do a quick hem around the edges. As long as you don’t mind the fabric rolling up slightly, I don’t think it’s necessary!
