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.)

I love my ergo too Jodi! Got baby number 2 due in October and I think my two year old would feel very important and lovely if she had her own ergo too – another project for my to do list!!! Lucky my sewing machine came back from the sewing machine health clinic today! Have a great weekend xx
Thanks for the shout-out! And so happy to see someone’s kidlet enjoying their doll carrier.
I went over to Beau Baby, but cannot find a pattern… do you have one (or something that I could follow) for your awesome Ergo?
beau baby pulled her pattern because she did not have time to answer questions for a free pattern.
My ergo was bought. Worth every cent.
Your style is really unique compared to other folks I’ve read stuff from.
Thank you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I will just bookmark this web site.
