Oh me, oh my… it’s been a solid week of whole-family illness and I’ve been dreaming of healthy days and the energy to do some projects! I have to catch up on the housework first, but here are some fabulously crafty tutorials and projects from fabulously crafty bloggers that have been keeping my spirits up in anticipation of happy days to come…
Firstly, I’m sort of obsessed with the idea of making a new baby carrier. I haven’t settled on a specific type yet, and I’ve been seeing a lot of neat ideas. One very attractive purchasable Ergo-like sewing pattern option is the sweetpod, with optional saddle bag attachment. I probably won’t end up making this due to the higher cost involved in the patterns and materials, but it was really neat to see what other crafty moms have made with in this flickr group.
Another free mei tai tutorial, which uses buckles, is also quite appealing.
And I’d love to make some of these fabulous peekaboo toy sacks to help contain our burgeoning collections:
There’s so much more I want to show you, but I need to go do some real work now… *sigh*… maybe tomorrow??
