We’ve had a few custom orders recently. This customer asked for a polar bear themed Mei Tai for a baby who isn’t born yet so it had to be gender neutral. Try finding polar bear fabrics which aren’t blue! After much searching we found this one and shipped it from Taiwan! On beige linen I think you’ll agree it looks rather nice.
The final votes were counted and we went with the goldfish. This gorgeous mei tai is now on loan to the North East Sling Library. I hope they enjoy it!
Yup! That’s right. A group of parents across the pond have raised $48,000 through donations to fund their documentary about modern babywearing and the entrepreneurs behind it. Their website is pretty cool too and features real-life stories and some beautiful photos. I’m going to be keeping my eye on it.
The film is earmarked for completion by December 2015!
This lovely royal blue carrier will soon be off on a journey around various sling libraries to raise our profile and hopefully get some good reviews! The questions is…which pattern would you choose?
Thanks to Rachel Coy at the North East Sling Library for the opportunity to spread the news about The Little Patch

Last night in between manically watching my first listing end on eBay I finished this gorgeous mei tai. An aubergine cotton twill carrier with a beehive pattern for a custom order. Shame it’s already sold…I’d be quite happy to keep it for myself! Hopefully we’ll get an action shot in the not too distant future.
Yesterday we headed out for a walk with the dogs and took the opportunity to do a little ‘photoshoot’ to show off one of our carriers in action. Up hills, along the river, across bridges and up steps…not a muddy wheel in sight! Pookie spent the journey to the waterfall on my back and then snuggled into his dad on the front on the way back. We called in at pets corner to see the parrots which gave a welcome break from Pookie entertaining himself by pulling out chest hairs (his dad’s not mine…honest!).
