What I’ve Been Up To (Part 3 – The Onbuhimo!)

dscf0601THE ONBUHIMO!!!!!!!!

I don’t know what took me so long to make one of these since I have been curious about them since my first days as a babywearer. Nevertheless…here she be;


Closeup of the waistband/ring, the bit running through the actual ring is the shoulder strap…


The fabric, Michael Miller.

Hopefully this will give you a better idea of how it works (again, missing my mannequin!)



  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.
