Project #26 - Muslin Wrap (Finished)

I was so excited to finally find the time to use my spotty muslin fabric that I wrote about in my spring fabric collection post earlier this month. I knew as soon as I saw the fabric that it would be perfect to make a medium weight muslin wrap with, but I kept putting off the project as I imagined that it would take me around an hour to complete. In reality it only took around 20 minutes! I must say that I am really pleased with how it turned out:

The wrap measures 90cms x 90cms and is backed with a piece of white flannalette. Of course, I put on one of the 'boehm baby' labels just to make it look a little more polished.

I figured the wrap would be good to either pop in the nappy bag or the car for those summer nights that turn coolish suddenly, rather than an 'every day use' kind of wrap (which we have plenty of).

Because of the possibility of storing it in the car (and the fact that I really, really, really love the spotty fabric), I figured I should make a coordinating draw string bag as well so that the wrap doesn't get dirty. Here is a picture of the finished wrap and bag:

Because the project was so easy and looks really great, I am tempted to make some more. Maybe if I can get the project list a bit smaller I might do just that!
