My child hates her stroller now and she doesn't like to be in her mei tai so much anymore because she wants to be exploring. I want to make a torso harness for my little girl. I'm looking around for patterns and I can't really find anything. Has anyone made anything like this?

I just did a little search and this is what I found these look pretty easy to replicate, and you could add padding to make them more comfortable and maybe make it out of some fun material to make it look less like a dog leash. they aren't the cutest things ever but they serve a great purpose

If you want something more fun, you could do something like the backpack harnesses:

They're basically a stuff animal with backpack straps and then a strap that the parents can hold onto that tucks into a pocket on the animal.

We have a store bought one that looks like the monkey backpack from walmart $10.

BUT I also have made my own. We had a spongebob that was a mini cd backpack, so I used the exsisting hardware (-the original black straps) that was on it and added my own harness strap and "leash" ribbon-but a thicker type that I made double and sewed down the sides. THe front buckle was saved from an old dog harness. And the leash is detachable too, not sure if you can see the clip.




I made it to fit my daughter when she was 2, she can still wear it and will be 4 soon, and my son now 2 wears it. spongebob was 50cents and the ribbon a dollar maybe.
