During my pregnancy with Ian I saw an advertisement in a baby magazine for a baby wrap. I thought it was the neatest thing! I already had a sling, but I never really liked it very well. I never felt truly hands-free with the sling. When I saw the baby wrap I could tell that I could be completely hands-free, which was important to me since I was going to have 5 children...6 and under...and trying to homeschool...and a two year old with sensory issues. Roger's mom bought me a baby wrap for Christmas and I couldn't wait to use it with Ian. The one we ordered was cute and I liked the idea of the baby wrap, but the material wasn't stretchy, so I wasn't as happy as I wanted to be.
Everywhere I went with Ian in the baby wrap I was drawing tons of attention to myself. I was asked constantly what it was and where they could get one. So, I began thinking, "Why am I letting these people get away? Why don't I sell them??? This is so simple...AND I could make some money!" I asked a friend of mine if she wanted to make them and we had grand plans to make them together. And then, I wondered if this was something I could do...by myself..something crafty...which I am not. She graciously told me I could try it on my own and come to her for advice. She's awesome!
So, I am making baby wraps!!! They are called Lil' Arrow Baby Wraps. I have been asked for a business card so many times that I have ordered some. I have also ordered some labels to put on the wraps. I am sooooooo excited!
