To save money, I thought maybe I could make some sort belly binder/wrap to wear after birth. Has anyone done this? I've heard that some just wrap some jersey knit (or moby wrap) fabric around their waist and tie it. I'm not really good at sewing, but I do have a sewing machine. Any good ideas or resources?

I think some fabric like a rebozo would be better, but I've not done it before. Rebozo fabric is a lightweight cotton- kind of like muslin.
