Tutorial: Make Your Own Mei Tai

I debated quite extensively with my husband about this tutorial. He saw how much time and effort I was putting into making it just right for you guys and he really wanted me to sell it.


I explained to him that I love you guys too much. Besides, it wasn't entirely my design and it's not like there aren't other tutorials out there.


So, download all my lovin' here!

In the tutorial, I mention that I didn't create pattern pieces for you, but I lied. I actually went back and created a pattern for the main body. You can download it here.

I hate disclaimers, but I have to have them. Feel free to make these for yourself, and for your friends. Please don't sell the pattern OR any Mei Tai Carriers that you make from the pattern. AKA Personal Use Only.

And pretty please. If you make one, take a picture and send me a link or an email. It makes me so happy!
Stay tuned for a giveaway on Monday!

I have a question? I am short 5'2" and I just taped all the pattern pieces together and it looks big for my torso. Should i scale it down? I am so happy you provided a pattern, I would most likely screw it up if I did it myself. Thanks for all your information and I am excited. Read the blog last night went and got fabric today. Thank you!
