I mean, DD2 is 4 now and we're not using it anyway (when we do BW, I reach for a mei tai now). And seriously, 15 yards of delicious Guatemalan fabric! I could probably resell it for $40-50, but that's less than $4 a yard!

I guess it just feels sacrilegious! I just need someone to tell me it's okay LOL!

So, what have others made out of their wraps? I think a long tiered skirt would look amazing, and be so light and breezy for spring if it ever comes!

Ugh, but it still seems soooooooo wrong...

I can imagine that you could make all sorts of things from that much fabric but I too would have trouble cutting into it!

Sorry, I'm no help

Do it! I am constantly repurposing fabric. Although I haven't cut into that beautiful batik ring sling that I wouldn't pass on to someone else anyway because it has a repaired tear in it. So easier said than done, I guess!

It does make more sense than selling it. I would have trouble too though; I'm saving my Storchenwiege for my children to carry my grandchildren in (way down the road but...).

The batik with a tear though- I'd totally cut.

I'm sorry, I'm no help...I couldn't do it...:

But if you do, I'd imagine that it would frey pretty badly if you didn't finish the edges very well.

I say do it!! I hemmed one of my didymos wraps (from 5.2 to 3.6m)and made a purse out of some of the extra fabric and saved the rest to do something special for my DD, when she's old enough to appreciate it.

DO IT! it's meant to be used and loved, no matter how it's done.
