Mei tai on a Monday: argyle awhile

When I entered my Earth Science class my freshman year in high school, I sat next to a great girl named Amanda.  While we weren’t super close in high school, we did have honors classes together and we were both in the Concert Choir.  We were friendly in those teen years, but lost touch after graduation, reconnecting several years ago on Facebook.  Ah, the digital age.

A few months ago, Amanda emailed me to let me know that she was expecting her first child, and she was interested in one of the mei tais that I make.  I was happy to add her to the “mei tai list” (which was 5 or 6 mei tais long at the time!).  When she told me she wanted something that “orange, green, blue and/or brown,” I sent her links to several different fabrics, but I was secretly hoping she would pick this argyle print, part of the Remix line by Ann Kelle.

I was thrilled when this is what Amanda decided on because I just think the print is fabulous.  It’s bright and fun without being completely in-your-face about it!

The straps are brown twill, nice and smooth.

And the reverse is a stripe with many of the same colors that appear in the argyle print.  I’m kind of amazed that I was able to so closely match the hood print to the body print on both sides of the carrier.

This carrier is already at its new home, waiting for a new baby to snuggle.
