I looked at mobywrap.com and saw how long their slings were done. They run about $30. at Target and the ones I've seen are made out of a tight knit fabric. The wrap is pretty much 18 1/2 feet in length of fabric (5.5 meters long on moby's site) and then folded over in half lengthwise. I had to piece mine together to make it long enough, but it worked! If you buy 6 yards of fabric at the store, then there's no sewing even required! This would make a great gift and it's so easy!
