If you want to use a decorative front panel it is not necessary to sew this marker stitch, I have just done so to show an alternative solution though I did find it helped me fit my front panel . This grey material is approximately 1.3m wide so I am going to make two wraps out of it. I laid out the material and using some pegs and pins have marked a middle line which I have then cut down the middle line to create two wraps, approximately 65cm wide each. The wrap needs to be approximately between 60-70cm wide so most lengths of fabrics will be able to make at least two wraps. Best practice advice is to make sure you have 6m, once you have got it home before you do anything else, give the fabric a wash so you can account for any shrinkage. A Moby wrap for example, is 5.5m long, but this is just a guide.

If you decide to use a baby carrier, take your baby with you when you buy it to make sure it’s a safe fit for them. If your partner is going to wear the carrier too, it needs to be adjustable to fit both of you as well. If the shop assistant can’t tell you about it and show you how to use it safely, go somewhere else.
