    It's a wrap!

    What a wonderful book for baby. I am a grandmother who loves to sew. I bought the book and found some beautiful material I chose to correspond with some of the wraps given in the book. The ideas come with practical tips for use, and types and likes of material to use.Even the approximate age for baby to use the wraps are given. The author really gave some wonderful ideas for baby aged newborn to a year or more. There are 'sling' wrap ideas for the older baby. The pictures presented in this book are entertaining in itself.Your ideas can be endless! The serged material and the book is what I am going to give the new mother for her baby shower. My favorite suggestion?......the picnic wrap. How adorable!
