(Isn't he cute?? I'm sure he thinks it's an apron...I think I'll let him go on believing that.)
To do this yourself, all you need is a yard of fabric, 16" of boning, 2 1" d-rings, and thread, and you can turn this:
My words of wisdom:
- Cut your straps 3" wide instead of 4 1/2" if you're using 1" d-rings.
- When turning your straps inside out, use chopsticks to push the fabric through! SO much easier!
- Do NOT use fabric covered boning...never purchased boning before (my best friend still giggles at the thought of having to ask a sales associate where to find it) and it was just a mess trying to insert into the casing.
- Instead of sliding the boning into the casing, pin it and sew it in as you are creating the top casing. SO much easier, less time consuming, and it stays in place.
- UPDATE: After using this for a time or two, I found it necessary to starch the fabric really well (so the fabric doesn't lay across baby's face and you can actually see her!)...you might consider using a stiffer fabric (not sure what?) if you don't want to have to do that.
