My current baby carrier is starting to fall apart, I needed a new one, found this tute: http://latebloomercrafts.blogspot.com/search/label/SSC and this is the result:

I used the shorter body length, interfaced the print fabric, and used the curved waist piece pattern, if (when) I make another one I'm using the straight waist pattern, the curved one is a PITA to sew. I like to wear the straps crossed in the back, like this:

I used 16" of webbing to connect to the male end of the buckle, next time I'll use 20". Also, next time the male end is going on the end of the strap instead of the female, the buckles sit in an uncomfortable place on the back.

All in all, I'm happy with this as a first attempt. here's another shot:

It looks great but it looks like your carrying your baby too low on your body, which will cause your back to ache after you wear it for awhile.  IF the webbing is slipping thru, then the only thing I can think of is that you don't have them threaded properly.......you may have to thread them back under itself thru the buckle.

Thanks for the advice. I've rethreaded the buckles properly and they now work fine Smiley

I know it is sitting too low in the pics, I have already tweaked it so that it sits properly at the waist.
