Mei Tai love

I found great DIY instructions for a Mei Tai baby carrier and have been sewing them like crazy lately. They're pretty simple especially since I discovered how to rip fabric!! Here's a few I've done so far....

I experimented with this one... I made contoured sides and it's padded - one of my favorites to use so far!

This was a baby gift for a friend... I used the Alexander Henry Maxfield fabric and love how it turned out. I gathered the shoulers and the bottom rail for this one to fit her premie baby better.

This was the 1st mei tai I ever made. It was incredibly easy - just wish I had taken the time wash the red fabric 1st - oops! I made it using the Alexander Henry fabric What's your number

Just a couple of action shots! It came in very handy while working on the new house!

Stars & Stripes Mei Tai Carrier

I thought I'd made a slightly different MT than the one's I'd done previously... and this is what I came up with! It's very comfortable and not too girly - so even Mike will use it! I've made 10 of these because after the 1st one, 9 others wanted to buy them! That was a major undertaking and I have a whole new respect for WAHM that make these!!!
