I’m pretty excited about this! I bought the fabric to make it while I was pregnant but never got around to it. Now the baby’s a little over 7 months old and I finally made it! A Mei Tai (pronounced May Tie) is an Asian baby carrier.
I love my Ergo now that it’s hot. It’s kind of bulky and all the snaps and hardware are a turn off for me. I have always thought Mei Tais are beautiful and it’s great that they’re mostly for back carry. Since my baby has been big enough for back carry, I feel like I am free to do almost anything.
I used a tutorial on Jan Andrea’s website. It was a very easy to follow pattern with good instructions. My only complaint was that when it was instructing how to cut out the pieces, I got really confused. If it weren’t for the sample layout there’s no way I would have figured it out.
I’m so happy with the way it turned out. I feel a huge sense of accomplishment, especially since this is something I’m going to be using all the time.
