Last week I wanted to make something awesome and try auctioning it for a good cause. I am not sure if what I came up with is fabulous but it was fun and we will just see how it goes. I often look at this lady in Canada's blog. She makes a bag a day and auctions them on her blog. I believe she has been doing it for a year or so. She has raised 12,000 dollars for darfur. It inspires me so much to think that she is just one person doing what she can.
So here goes....
A nursing wrap (keep reading even if you don't have babies...I am sure most of us know a mother of a baby or someone that is going to have a baby).
Charcoal with a pink and white border
Large neck (easy to pull over hair, easy to see baby if you want)
Slit on one side that can go in the back or to the side if you want one arm out
Perfect for those times that you DO NOT want the squirmy 6 month old pulling the blanket off (the airplane, the friends house when the 12 year old son is in the room etc)
Small and lightweight- could easily be stored in a diaper bag
Pull it out and use it as a blanket for baby
My pictures turned out awful (Tyler isn't home to I tried having Garret take the pictures). So that didn't really work out. I will try to get more up later. If you want to see a very similar item go to this website. http://www.obuba.com/index.php?o=products
