I have a long piece of woven cloth I got at Fabricland months ago. I bought it with the intention of using it as a woven wrap. I asked for it to be cut to 5 meters, and assumed it was, and didn't measure it when I got home.
Fast forward about six months, and now I'm ready to use it (DS is 5 months old). But when I measured it, it's too short! I've read that 4.6 meters is good, but this piece is only 3.5m! ARGH! (Kicking self for not measuring it myself!).
I was wondering if I could sew a bit more than a half meter on each end to lengthen it out. I know it's not a good idea to sew two pieces of fabric together since the seam would be in the middle of the wrap where baby sits and would get too much wear, making it unsafe. But if I just sew the pieces on the ends to give me more room to tie a knot, would that be safe? Has anyone done this? I really love the fabric and the colours of this piece, and can't start from scratch with another new 4.6 m piece of fabric...
