Finally! It only took me nine months to finish (coincidentally, the same amount of time it took to make Kenzie), but I’m so happy with how it came out. I used a Mahogany 120×90 tablecloth that I picked up off Amazon for about $50. These are jacquard tablecloths, which mean they’re woven in a certain way so that the pattern and its inverse appear on both sides of the cloth. This is important not just cosmetically, but it also means that the fabric has just enough give and flex in all directions without being too stretchy. The weave allows flexibility and support. Considering that most wraps and carriers are $100+, if you know how to sew, this is a great option!
I followed the tutorial at Fine and Fair, and the only issue I ran into was when I was stacking the panel layers: “Lay down your inner panel piece with the attached straps on a flat surface, with the strap attachments facing up.” The straps should be right side down. I didn’t do that and ended up with the inverse pattern for my straps. After about two minutes of “!@&$!!,” I realized I actually liked that better. It looks great! Basically, what that means is that you really can’t mess up.
Here, see how the straps are gray instead of black?
I also added a cute pink pocket, because who doesn’t need a pop of color here and there? And here she is, riding pretty. 🙂
