My Stop and Smell the Roses MT
I was looking for other types of carrier when I came across MeiTais. There were so many beautiful carriers! How could I choose? Then I looked at prices and it was going to take a long time to save up for a brand new MT.
So I began looking for tutorials and I came across a Scandi-style MT tutorial (ChristmasTwins) and thought I'm going to try that! Keep in mind I don't own a sewing machine and I've only ever made curtains with a straight stitch. Well, with that in mind I headed to the store for some fabric.
I found a pretty sepia tone rose fabric and thought brown silk for the inside would be perfect. Now I just needed strap material. As I dug through I came across chocolate brown denim. Perfect! I checked out and headed home.
Once home I called upon a friend to help me in my time of need! (for a machine of course!) I brought it home and got started. It took me 2 days and lots of choice words, but when it was finished it was beautiful.
I couldn't wait to put DS in it. He loved it and I put my DD (45lbs!) in it. It was still comfortable for me but my DD's legs are too long for it. (Guess I'll have to make another! LOL)
Not only is it comfortable, but I can dress up or down depending on the situation.
