I have a "stupid" question... how do you put the child in this thing?  I have no idea.  My best guess is that it takes two ppl to do this.   Would love to know.. Is

Hop on over to www.thebabywearer.com and you will find loads of info on using Mei Tais and other baby carriers  Grin I know several Craftsters that are active over on the forums there too - myself included.

(And no, you don't need to have a helper to pop baby in an MT  Grin )

I seem to agree with the masses... Those are fabulous! Love the fabrics. I made a mei tai from this pattern last year.

How easy are they to make?  I want to make one for my sister and my nephew.

I don't know about her, but I found the only difficult thing was forcing my sewing machine to sew through the padding. Apparently switching to a denim needle would have helped (hindsight is great isn't it?). Anyway, you should try it out and post pics when you're done!

Wow, I just totally added this to my list of favorites (and I don't even HAVE a baby!). I think it looks better than most of the ones you buy in the stores!

Thank you all so much for your compliments, Iīm so happy you like them.

They look fantastic! What did you pad with? What are they made from?

And btw, your backcarry? Good form!
The padding is an old fleece blanket that I cut down to the right size. All the fabric is IKEA, the straps are the Minna fabric and the decorating is from the Fredrika line.

They are really not hard to make, Iīm a beginner and the green one was the first big project for me. Iīd only done 2 pants for my son before that.

I have a "stupid" question... how do you put the child in this thing?  I have no idea.  My best guess is that it takes two ppl to do this.   Would love to know.. Is
Like one before me I recommend www.thebabywearer.com Itīs full of usefull information on babywearing.

on the green one what is the purpose of the square flap thing at the back of the baby's head? is that what you switched out on the orange one? i see that it is curved there instead. good mod, i can't imagine what the flap is for...

oh, and i love your fabrics, especially the flowery stuff on the first one. it goes great with those striped leggings too Wink
where's it from?
The square flap is a sleep hood so that if baby falls asleep then you can put it up so the babyīs head doesnīt "flop around"  Here Iīm pulling it up but havenīt fastened it down
The fabric is IKEA Fredrika (love the whole line)
