Love this idea since I have three kids and could use a nice cover for the Bjorn. Buying new from them is too much. Here it's so simple to do. I made mine reversable. I would like to add that I should have made it longer to cover more of the tail because as baby grows I had to adjust the length. I bought these fabric patterns at Hobby Lobby. My favorite craft store. Love how the two color coordinate. I have an old Kenmore sewing machine for over 10 years now. I just purchase a Brother's SE400 but don't want to get ride of this old sewing machine because it's built to last and you just can't find quality like this anymore.
