What to do with a woven wrap that's too big?

Hi! I've just purchased my dream woven wrap, but in a size 6 extra wide because that's all I could find! I really love it, but a size 6 extra wide is just WAY to big for my petite frame (5'1; 130 lbs). I should have just passed on it, but I didn't. Any suggestions on what I could do now as this wrap is just too big for me? Cut it? Convert it? Re-sell it? : (

cut it you can do tapered ends too, just make sure they look like this /_/ instead of this /_\ for better draping. You can also cut off some of the width, it will be a more even cut if you just snip an inch or so and then rip down the length and hem.

boy oh boy oh boy oh.....??

I'd run some of the more complicated back carries with multiple passes to make sure it really is too long. It would be a shame to chop it only to find out you need the length for the cooler carries.
