Fun with sewing

My sister-in-law and a family friend both had babies last weekend. Being cheap (and reasonably handy with a sewing machine), I made them mei tai carriers. Since my sister-in-law had a girl, I finally got to pick out some cute pink material at the fabric store. I also really like how the blue one turned out, so I might make another for myself. :) Of course I had to test them out with my baby.

    Very cute, Sarah! I love the circle patterns on both of them. Adorable.

    Thanks for the compliments! I basically followed this pattern--the instructions and photos are very helpful, but I made the waist straps horizontal instead of angled like they show.

    Wow, those look really nice! I really need to sew a MT for a pregnant friend who wants to try babywearing this time around, but dang it's just so hard to get off my butt to do anything these days. :roll:

    Plus 1.

    They turned out great, and that was a really thoughtful gift.

    I wish I knew how to use a sewing machine.

    Oliver looks so cute up there and I like the patterns. I wish that I could wear Lilly on my back more, but she has too much fun grabbing onto my hair and trying to pull it out. :angry5:
