Information on the sewing class

What you will need:

If you are making a pouch baby carrier:
1 1/2 yards of fleece
Thread that matches
A sewing machine

If you are making a no sew wrap baby carrier
5 yards of fleece or micro fleece (micro fleece is less supportive, but easier to tie, you've been warned)

You will learn how to make your carrier and how to use it safely!
