I made a couple slings for my sis a couple weeks ago...I know whatcha mean about it being handy and all.  If and when we have another I think I would do this MUCH more than the stroller we used to lug everywhere...  You know, the hummer strollers with shocks and all (I actually like them, but they can be a pain).  We only have a compact car...so if you do any sort of shopping  Roll Eyes

NEhow- very cute!  I have that same fabric, so I guess I'm biased!

I love how these look like they work, I wanna make em for people I know, but I'm worried about the response and if something rips or they don't put it on right and the child falls and gets hurt.. I would be very sick because I made it.... so :x....
But they look so awesome...
Dun even know how well something like that would go down with the parents with kids cuz I don't have em, not wanting any for the time being etc etc ^.^;;;

I love the fabric of your Mei Tai - I've been using one with my LO for the longest time - and at 33lbs, it's still comfy. Smiley

My only concern is that it looks like the straps are wrapped around her legs - I don't know if that is safe or not.  When I use mine, I wrap the ties under her bottom and bring them back around and tie it in the front so I can make sure nothing gets loose.  There are a lot of sites that have directions with pics on how to use one, and I haven't seen a direction on wrapping them around the baby's legs - I'd just be concerned about blood circulation and what not. 

Happy Mei Tai wearing!

Charfish - thanks for the note. I will look at sites on how to wear it and alter the way I had it. I just loosely wrapped them around her legs after I tightly did under her bottom; more to take up some of the strap length than anything else. But you're right - there's a better way. Thanks for letting me know Smiley

This is really cool - and cute skirt! 
What tute did you use?  I wanna make one!  My 9 mo old is around 23/24 lbs!!  I'd love to wear him, but he's so heavy that most slings/snugglies don't work...is this comfy?  I wonder if my chunker would be hard to carry around?
