I have a great backpack for my baby that I got at a second hand shop. I got it for free when I took her old clothes in for credit. I love it more than the stroller because it leaves me hands free to take care of the other 3 kids. She loves it because she can see everything and be close to Mama.
I love that you made yours, and since mine has a metal frame, I have to check it at the gate when we travel. It looks as though yours can be stuffed into a travel bag. And it can be washed in a machine! Bravo! A great new thing.

The skirt is adorable. I love the fabric. My DH was looking over my shoulder and wants to tickle her toes!

Craftewoman, I do love having my hands free. Especially since DD likes to try to buck herself out of the stroller anytime I stop. It's cute. Let me tell you.  Undecided That's sweet your DH said that!

I had a tomy baby backpack thing when soph was the same age a your dd, i wish I'd been able to make it myself- i would have saved myself a fortune! AND yours looks like it can be folded so I might have to try it.

having looked around at tutes for beibeis, scandis and mei tais I think I'm gonna go for the mei tai.
all i need to do now is have a rifle through my bits box and see what I need and what I've got... I know i have the padding and body material, but the strap material may have to be bought- for this I'll be glad to pay for "proper" material rather than the jumble bags I normally get my material in lol!!!!

Awesome.  I had a fleece no-sew mei tai that my little guy outgrew last spring.  (He got too heavy, so he'd end up sagging down to my knees.)  I think I'll have to find some old jeans to make one like this so it doesn't stretch so much.  It's so much nicer to have him in a sling than a stroller, especially since I take the bus everywhere.

Good idea on using it for your vacation; when we went to Banff, the baby stayed in the ring sling the entire week.  They're really convenient.

I love your fabric choices and she looks cozy (if a little puny--poor bird!). I have a MT and I carried my nearly two-year-old all over NYC in it. She slept through a lunch in Chinatown--on my back!

For people who are unaware: You can do front carries with little bitties!

The carrier looks not only comfy and secure, but what a beautiful fabric choice!!
Love it!

love your material, it turned out great! I made another style of wrap a few months ago when my DD was born, (like the moby) but it is too stretchy now that she is bigger. This one looks like it would work perfect... I can't wait to make one!
