Linen Swaddlng Cloth

November 21, 2014

TUTORIAL: gauzey muslin swaddle blankets.  I am so sick of baby prints and need a light summer swaddle blanket!

 I loved carrying my babies in slings.  It was an easy, flexible option to stay close together while we got out and about. However, I was not so crazy about the choice of sling materials.  There are very few "kid prints" that I actually like and wearing Mickey Mouse fabric over my reborn figure was not something I cherished.  But the alternatives, though more subdued, were bland and uninspired.  Why did I not think of linen?  It's beautiful, breathable, hypo-allergenic, all natural and in terms of strength, is three times stronger than cotton.

 

So instead of buying some pre-made, garish contraption, make your own lovely one.  Take your favorite linen wrap in a color your love and literally bond with your little one.

I wish I thought of this when my babies were small !
