|Yours won't come with the eternal spit up mine tends to have. Say it with me: machine washable. Good.|
|See? Same on both sides. It makes me happy.|
|Knit side, purl side, and lots of roll.|
For a wrap without a center seam the very easiest way to cut out the carrier is to fold the fabric in half along the width (hamburger style) . It makes for more even edges and takes up less space on your cutting board. Or your living room floor. For a wrap with a center seam just make sure your two cut pieces are right on top of each other with the edges matching up.
Smooth out the fabric as much as possible. This task is much easier when there aren't children running over it or deciding to park their little keisters in the middle.

For wraps made with 2.5-3 yards of fabric, stitch the two pieces together. I suggest a flat fell seam for both stability and a uniform look on both sides. You now have one loooooooong piece of fabric to wrap a baby in.

Now all that's left is to serge, serge, serge around the edges. Then serge some more. It takes awhile to go up and down 6 yards of fabric. Most knits don't require a serged edge, but I think it looks more finished with serging.
