DIY: Mei Tai baby carrier
I sewed my own Mei Tai baby carrier.
I figured that I should own my own-- you know, so I can be a better baby sitter! =D
I got the plans from Suzanne over at "Beau Baby" ...the grey twill was free, I don't remember who gave it to us- thank you whoever you are!
(Thank you Trinity, for being my little model.)
~I added 2" to the length of the body panel- but I guess that I did not really need to do that.
~Sewed it inside out so it would be reversible (kind of like the tutorial HERE). But I attached the body to the waist, and the waist ties to the waist band like you would assemble a half-apron...so there are no raw edges, and it is completely reversible.
~I did not stuff the shoulder straps, and I don't think that I'd like them stuffed- wouldn't it be hot???
~ I widened the shoulder straps 1", but next time would widen them 2"-4"
~For the waist band padding, I used 4 layers of fleece- 4"x30"
