Babywearing has been a huge part of my life, especially since K was born. One of my favorite baby carriers is the gorgeous Ellevill Zara Deli woven wrap that you can see in the pictures. I converted it into a swing without having to make any modifications to the wrap itself.
However, before I show you how I set up this swing, I need to include a disclaimer. You must use a WOVEN wrap for this swing. Do not, I repeat DO NOT, substitute a sheet, blanket, or stretchy wrap for this swing. They do not function the same way as a woven wrap. Also, always be sure to test the swing yourself, ensuring the wrap is well knotted, before putting your child in it. I sat on the swing once I set it up and it held me up. There. Glad that's off my chest! Now on to the fun part...
Update on December 4, 2013: I have successfully tied a homemade stretchy wrap into a sensory swing. It is strong enough to hold me and has been in use for over two months straight now for multiple hours. It has not come undone. So the tutorial is doable with a stretchy wrap using more knots, but please use your discretion. Thanks.
Our swing is set up in a wide doorway by screwing two eye bolts (sorry, don't recall the size off the top of my head!) into the frame. Then we used carabiner hooks that can each hold up to 300 and some odd pounds. You can see the set up below.
I knotted my woven wrap around the carabiner hooks. Make sure the knot is nice and tight. Be sure to test the swing after it is hung.
Like I mentioned, the boys are loving this new swing. They have tried sitting in it in various ways. I have also tried tying the wrap in different ways to make different "seats" for them to sit on. For instance, J enjoys using it like a hammock, but also enjoys sitting it in and spinning around.
K, on the other hand, likes to use it to fly like an airplane or sit in it like a jolly jumper.
