Hello!  I'd like to give a gift to my doula and was thinking a rebozo would be nice (I also believe it's on the wishlist for my doula).  But I am not really in the position to purchase a nice, new, fancy one, so I need to make something. 

I was wondering if any doulas have made a rebozo out of fabric?  If so, what dimensions did you use?  Tips on which types of fabric to buy? 

 

I would greatly appreciate any feedback!

I have one of these ones and it's perfect. Dimensions and material information are in the description.

 

How thoughtful of you!

The fabric should be durable and not itchy.  It should also be washable in case blood or fluids get on it.  Sounds like a great gift!
