Soft structured full buckle carrier

Ive been planning on making a Mei Tai for some time & not quite had the confidence to start what i thought would be a big project.

Anyway while re-organising my numerous boxes of fabric & sewing bits last week, i came accross the buckles & webbing i had cut off my old Tomy crotch dangler carrier six months ago (yes, i horde everything that i think may come in usefull one day, lol) It gave me the insparation i had been looking for & i made the decision to take the plunge & make a full buckle carrier instead, as i havent got one in my stash right now.

Its my first attempt at making a baby carrier & also my first attempt at applique, In total it only took me about a day & a half to design & make, To say i am pleased with the results is a huge understatment, i am absoloutly over the moon.


I now can't wait to make a start on on my next carrier, I have some cowboy fabric that i bought to have made into a custom carrier, but now im considering making the custom carrier myself lol. I think the next one will be a half buckle on brown cord straps.


  1. Thats brilliant!! Was considering making one as they are out of my price range, but since my daughter has started walking I doubt she'd go in it!! xx

  2. Do you have a tutorial for making this? I've been looking to make this exact carrier and I can't find any instructions. Please help!
