Devoted Knits Simply Wraps

*Contest is now closed*

When I first received my Devoted Knits Simply Wraps in the mail, I was not 100% sure what to do with them. They looked really pretty but I could not figure out how to incorporate them into my work. The first thing I tried was using it as a head to toe wrap by just placing one end under the feet and one end under the head.

My first attempt at using a Simply Wrap



















You can tell from the lack of editing and the absence of my logo that I was not happy with the result. It doesn’t show the lovely texture of the wrap, it isn’t wide enough, and it leaves that little gap behind the neck. I was beginning to think i would need 2 or 3 wraps just to fit the baby.

I went back to the drawing board to think about how to get the full potential out of these wraps. An idea then came to me- pantyhose. Have you every tried to put pantyhose on without stretching them width-wise? The width-wise stretch is vital for the ability to get into pantyhose quickly and without snags. As it turns out, the secret to using the Devoted Knits Simply Wrap is the exact same thing. Here are some lovely step-by-step photos of me placing a wrap on a baby.



This is how the wrap comes

This is the money shot- this move is what makes the wrap lay so nice.

I lightly place the wrap over the baby and tuck the top under the head

I gently pull the wrap to tuck the other front edge down near the leg

Here I am tucking it in

I gently pull around to tuck under the bum

Here is the view from the top- you will never see that it doesn't cover the far side of the baby in pictures

The end result!

And the same technique with a different baby- this time in the taco pose




















And there you have it- the best way I have found to get the maximum potential out of a Devoted Knits Simply Wrap. I now use at least one of these wraps in every session. I love adding variety to my images without having to move the baby!
