I made this little Mei Tai (Asian Baby Carrier) for my roommate's sister-in-law.  Its rainbow and has Finding Nemo on it, with a little pocket for a diaper of cell phone.  The baby is tied up close to the carrier and from what I have read about them, they are supposed to be really good for you back compared to other carriers.  Here is the tutorial I used for it.  Its really good.

Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.  Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun... to express ourselves.

So why buy what you can craft?  Smiley

I bet she'll love it. Those carriers are the best. I made one that I use to carry my daughter in all the time. The nice thing about the mei tai is that it works for a looooong time. Good job!
