Ok, I really want a woven wrap for DD because we're starting to have sag issues with our Moby.  Has anyone else done this?  Any advice?  Here's what I know so far:  use Osnaburg and follow instructions similar to this http://rdmama.wordpress.com/2011/08/16/tutorial-tuesday-how-to-make-an-osnaburg-wrap/

Do I need to know anything else before I embark on this project?  Thanks for any advice or input!

I haven't done it, but I know that's a common fabric for DIY wraps.  I think the biggest thing is just making sure that it's safe, and it looks like she goes over that a bit in the link you posted (like you don't want seams in the middle, etc.).  Good luck and definitely post the finished product :)

I've done it with pretty decent success! I bought some really pretty airy fabric that was sturdy (somewhere along the lines I read to pull really hard on it to make sure it doesn't rip). I would do the osnanburg (sp???) if I was going it over again though, but this was for a wedding so I needed to coordinate with a b.maids dress (and then I ran out of time and didn't even get it done!).

The fabric has been purchased.  I really hope this works out.  Saving $100 would be sweet!

Honestly, it is unbelievable how easy they are to make.  All you really need is 6 yards of good sturdy fabric, even a cotton gauze is good, nice and breathable.  If you can get it 60" wide then you can make 2.  She doesn't say in her tutorial, but I like to taper my ends a bit to make it easier for tying off.  My LO is 26lbs and I frequently carry her on my back with my homemade woven wrap.

Update:  Wrap is made!  Wrap already has food on it.
