My Mei Tai project

Hubby had his Asian inspired pouch sling. He loved the fabric and style but didn't like how it fit. He wanted something different.

So I researched and planned to make him his own Mei Tai. He was excited about an Asian baby carrier being designed just for him with Asian pattern fabric. I also wanted to sew a Mei Tai for myself but decided it was not necessary for me to make two. I am much shorter than him so it was very important for it to fit him first then I would tie the straps to fit me.

I have years that I haven't sewn anything. But I knew I would be able to make him his Mei Tai. Between taking care of the kids, measuring fabric, cutting and sewing it took me 2 days to complete. But I must add I did take my time with it. I am really amazed at what I can do with sewing machine. The end product is really a work of art. A complete Asian inspired home made Mei Tai.
