Reversible Baby Carrier Cover Tutorial!
In anticipation of Baby #2, we recently pulled out Kate's old Baby Bjorn. I noticed it's a bit faded and well, drabby looking. I looked online and you can buy a Bjorn cover if you want to shell out big bucks. Or... you could make one yourself and save lots of $$. I'll show you how :)

This cover will fit all Baby Bjorn® carriers, the Evenflo Snugli® Carrier, Jeep® 2 in 1 Baby Carrier, and the Infantino® Euro Rider Soft Baby Carrier.
