DIY Mei Tai Baby Carrier

My DIY Mei Tai Baby Carrier

I made two identical DIY Mei Tai baby carriers for the twins. It’s basically so you can wear the baby a bit like a backpack (or a frontpack).   A black baby carrier from a big box store wasn’t going to do it for me. I used Still Learning Life’s DIY Hooded Mei Tai tutorial for it!

It was pretty easy to do, but a bit time consuming. I would say it takes about a weekend to make one perhaps. I used a cotton Japanese print from my stash for the body of the carrier. It has mochi bunnies, sushi, konpeito and various other Japanese sweets on it. The lining is pink star minke fabric. The off-white strap fabric was a twill from Joann’s. I also got the batting and minke from there.

You can see more baby dresses I’ve made in this section of my blog.

Wow! Beautifully made. I’ve seen women wearing these on the front side. Can it also be used for hip riding as the baby gets older?
