Thick Purple Waves Mei Tai

by Dawn
(Gilbert, Arizona USA)

I originaly had a regular thin Purple Waves. I LOVED it. I used it all the time, it felt amazing on my shoulders, bouncy is how I would describe it. So someone had an ISO out for a thin purple waves in exchange for their thick Purple Waves. I thought, well if I love thin PW I will surely love thick PW even more.

Well, I was wrong. I was so dissapointed. It actually felt like I was wrapping with a towel. I had some friends try it and they agreed. So there is sat in my living room, no one wanting to buy it on FSOT. The more I looked at it, the more I started to hate it. Then I though, wow it would make an AMAZING mei tai because it is so thick. So I was not really scared to cut it, it actually gave me great satisfaction.

I love this so much more as a MT than a wrap, and I use it a lot more than I would a wrap.

Gorgeous!! I just wish there was a better picture of the shoulder straps. I have seen your wrap conversions on tbwer so know what they look like but other might not.

Did you use a pattern? I would love to know how to turn a wrap into a carrier like this.

great wrap transformation & such a cool idea to not give up on the thick wrap and turn it into something you love and use.
