that babywearing is fast becoming the norm, but if we did, one place we could find it is in the fabric store. McCall’s now has a pattern for a pouch and a mei tai. (The straps on the mei tai look pretty skinny to me, and the pouches look too big for the models, but hey, it’s a step!)
If you’re a DIYer, don’t skip the free instructions at Sleeping Baby Productions. I happen to be partial to the Ball Baby Overall pattern, but there are other cool patterns hosted there as well. There’s even a link to a free downloadable pattern for a soft structured carrier for those DIYers who prefer carriers that click.
