I am a baby carrier collector.
(And baby collector too.)
I don’t think any mother of more than one child should try to parent without one. (opinionated much?) There are different carriers for different seasons – a ring sling for when they are tiny, a Mei Tai when money is too tight for a fancy backpack, and my current love… the Ergo.
My god-daughter’s mother is also an Ergo lover, and my god-daughter loves taking care of her baby dolls. What would be more fun for her than a mini-version of the Ergo? To avoid a rebellion, I had to make one for my children as well.
In my search for the pattern* for these adorable tot-sized soft structured carriers, I discovered an awesome sewing blogger, Suzanne. I have such a big crush on her sarcastic style and her lovely sewing projects. She’s a mom! And she sews for herself! And her husband! I can’t give that enough exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So head over to Beau Baby and give her a little comment love, will ya?
(*The pattern is no longer available on her website. This one looks similar, but I haven’t used it.)
