Yesterday, Amy challenged her readers to leave a comment about ONE THING we would finish this week. Next Monday, we report back. A success means that we are entered in a drawing for a fabric prize.
While a fabric prize would be lovely, my goal this week would be the same even without the challenge. My comment says:
Since a mei tai takes me about five hours to complete from start to finish, finishing two would be a particularly productive week. Though, I do think it’s possible since both of them are already cut out, including the straps. Last night, I finished the sleeping hood for Leah’s.
That’s Leah’s, on the right. She liked the animal fabric I used for the back of Amy‘s mei tai, and I had enough for one more carrier. Since she has a little girl, I picked something just a touch more girly for the other side, so when she wants to change it up, she’s got the orange and aqua flowers on the reverse. (side note: I know nothing about fashion, however, I read that the tangerine orange color in that print is the hot color for spring. Bonus?)
Alisha, after much deliberation, decided she wanted the green and white owls print. I am amused by this because Alisha lives in Japan and that is a Japanese fabric, manufactured in Japan, which I purchased as an import from an online shop in the US. I had thought that this would be the mei tai I actually finished before the baby arrived, but alas, it was not to be. Alisha and hubby Shimon welcomed their baby boy a week ago.
Back up the photo a little bit and you will find two more mei tais in queue on my sewing desk. I need to confirm strap color on the blue one, and get the brown strap fabric for the green one in the dryer!
