Postby gilbertandmartha » Wed Jan 16, 2013 6:56 pm

So the fabric is here, its in the washer. Hopefully I'll cut it out tonight.

i'm making this carrier http://www.sewmamasew.com/blog2/october2010/SMSPeaPodTutorial.pdf

I was going to make the sweetpea carrrier, but saw someone else had posted about this one, and its exactly what I need.

So here is the fabric

So all the straps are done (thanks to Walle on the tv!) and its all pinned in place ready to stitch and turn rightside out.

I have got one minor problem, I think i should be anchoring one of the waist straps to the buckle. @PixieJemLeif did you find that you had to stitch the non-adjustable side of the waist strap onto its self. To me it seems a bit funny not to.

Looks very good, can I ask a few questions though as I can't quite work it out :oops:
Is it just a hip carriers that fastens over the shoulder?
How does it actually fasten? I can see the female ends of the clips but I can't see the male ends and from the pictures in the link it just looks like its been tied on :-?
