I come from a land Downunder! - Olivia!!

Those of you that participate in Australias babywearing forum, Baby Carriers Downunder, will remember the wrap we all designed not so long ago....

Esther from Keonislings kindly put her hand up to organise the mammoth task of having the Downunder wrap woven - it is made by Girasol, all the way from Poland! I bought two, thinking I would chop one up and convert it, and keep the other as a wrap. Well, my little Phoenix isnt into wrapping any more, sadly. Oh well....

Just encouraged me to make Olivia -

Hood up

and hood down...
I made this for Kieran, can you believe that in all the years Ive been making carriers - both as a business and as a DIYer, I have NEVER made him one? Sheesh, what a bad bad girl!

Now I have just got to catch him wearing our littlest creation, in my latest creation!!!

Little Birdy

Hey folks! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Its been a wild ride this year, to say the least!

I finished a special carrier for a special cause today. It was auctioned and all of the proceeds are going to a dear family in need. Thankyou everyone for donating too, it is the very least we could do. I just love our community, it has given me faith in our 'village' culture!

Without further ado, I introduce to you Little Birdy.

Here she is with her hood up. I love this print so much, and it co-ordinates perfectly with the Teal denim.
100% hand driven appliqué - satin stitched on and then I followed the satin stitch with a triple straight stitch to make it POP!
Annnnnnd,,,,,.... PRINTED STRAPS! This print is a home decorating weight, so perfect to use on the straps! I only used the print for the top of the strap, I love the support the denim gives and didn't want to lose any of that goodness.

It felt so good making her, I loved the whole process. I hope Little Birdy loves her new home, and I hope her new family love her!!

Finally, Kobis SV Carrier!

Miss Kobi's Solarveil panel Beetlebum Baby Carrier! I thought that this was the very last of the Trees, but alas, I think there may be enough for another carrier, I love it so much. It is so fun!

Her carrier is made on Bamboo Denim.

She is coming over this afternoon to pick it up, I hope she loves her!!!
