So I made a mei tai when Hobbit started getting to heavy for our Moby Wrap (and before we bought a stroller) but the straps were always a bit to short to do a easy back carry and there was no padding. Someone linked this pattern when they made one for their kids a few months ago and I decided to make a new one if I found the time. I’ve gathered all the supplies for the overnight bag I’m making but in the process picked up fabric for this and ended up get it cut out and finished in the last week whilst waiting for bag supplies to arrive (they’re all here now so that’s next on the sewing agenda).
I finished it yesterday and tested it out taking Hobbit down to take the bins out. She’s on the big side for it now but it was definitely more comfortable than the old one.
Pattern: A fuller day’s tutorial
Sewn for: Squishy
Thread: Gutermann 000 (black) & 800 (white)
Any problems/changes: Broke a lot of needles sewing the thick straps but made it in the end. Also had some trouble with sewing the body together around the straps so would consider doing tapered ends on the straps, making them a little thinner (probably just a slightly bigger seam allowance) or widening that section of the body pattern.
