    Does anyone have any they want to get rid of? I thought I'd make a post and ask here before i went and found some to order online next week.

    Mine are all homemade. Very easy to do. I still have a baby. Don't get the ones in the store. They are junk in my eyes. WAY to small. See if you can find someone that can make them.

    I'm going to make mine. They are so simple and so much bigger than the ones you can buy.

    Making them would be cool, but how do you do it?

    You take a yard and a half of fabric and make a square out of them.

    My mom made mine and she made them with about 3 yards because she doubled them.

    You cut one yard and add the half at the bottom to make it square. Then finish the ends. You do that with the other side and then sew them together. That is about it.

    Making them square makes it easier to wrap them.
