  1. Jen, that is gorgeous!!

  2. Thanks, Aida. It’s not finished yet. I want to put a black hood with applique on it. I wish the straps were wider but I didnt have enough fabric!

  3. This is stunning!!! Let me know if you’re putting it up for sale cause I’d love to have it!!!! Mack loves her mei tei (I’ll send a pic as soon as I have one of her in it) especially for shopping – it’s great for in and out of the car seat shopping trips so I don’t have to take her car seat in.
