So this past weekend DP and I set up the office with one desk for computer work and one desk for all my crafty projects! I even made myself an "inbox" for all my unfinished projects. By golly they're actually getting done now.

I've been wanting to sew a new carrier for my youngest foster son and finally have the space to start a project and be able to leave it and come back to it.

I used black cord for the straps and body and an old scrap of a Marimekko fabric that I found in a Crate & Barrel outlet years ago. I did a wool felt applique on the back side to pretty it up and now it's my favorite part. Finally all those felt food scraps are coming in handy.

I LOVE the black and white one! I made my first mei tai not long ago and I'm going to have to make a few more soon...I have several pregnant friends and DH wants one that's not too girly for him to use.

Great job!  Cool

There's nothing sadder than hearing that the fabric I'm drooling over was bought at an outlet store, years ago.   Cry  Great work, and great taste!

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

Those are great!  I'd love an action shot to see how they actually work; I've seen these before but always been baffled by them.

Great job and very cute! 

The back carry was my favorite...my little one would always fall asleep while I was doing housework, laundry, cooking, etc.
