My Baby Carrier

I borrowed a friend's baby carrier back when I went to Girl's Camp and loved it. It was a pretty simple design, so I decided to try making my own.




And I love it!

I really like the wavy applique I put on the front.



And the color.



And it's not too feminine so Bob can wear it and still look some-what manly... Well, as manly as a guy carrying a baby can look. I guess he mostly just looks like a dad. And I like that.

Graham loves to stand, so here he is standing on Bob's
hands instead of just sitting in the carrier. Silly boy.


I probably can't make these to sell (yet) because I need to make sure I wouldn't be infringing on any patents from any other baby carriers. Maybe one day I'll make these to sell.





Until then... Isn't it cute?!



Please note that I educated myself on certain health problems related to using baby carriers, both in adults and infants. As far as my research and understanding of such problems, this carrier that I designed and created is safe and supports proper weight distribution and alignment for both myself and my husband as well as our son.

  1. Wow, that is amazing! I would never think to make my own baby carrier. It takes a lot of skill and creativity to produce something like that. Kudos on the design!

    1. Thanks, Mike! It's definitely not a project I'd recommend for a beginner at sewing, that's for sure! ;)

  4. That is so great that you made that. My best friend is having a baby and her mom told me to get her a carrier for a baby boy. She is the fist of my friends to have a baby.

    1. Thanks! Carriers can be expensive, and seeing as how I don't have a spare $150 hanging around, and since I know a little something about sewing, making one for myself was my best bet. I do think every mom should have one!
