Thanks for the tute, I'm almost done mine now, hopefully it turns out as nice.

how did you deal with the bulk of the fabric when you were sewing on the straps, there is just so much, I'm having a hard time getting it out of the way.

roll them up and use a cheap hairband (plain elastic, nothing special) to hold them in an oval roll like a flattened toilet roll. leave your sewing end with a bit of give, I left about 8" on mine after rolling from the other end. hope that makes sense.

I know this is an old post but I am confused.

After you fold the bottom half of the fabric do you sew all around it to close it? I don't get how the child's butt stays in it if it is just a piece of fabric with ties? Am I totally missing something here?

I never noticed that question, I know it probably wont be relevant to you any more but it might help someone else.

yes you fold up the bottom bit and sew all around. the waist strap gets tied on to the parent before the child ever gets near it, child goes in next and then the shoulder straps get tied. because of the length of the body piece, a comfy seat is created when it's tied on to the parent.
