Baby Carrier Cover and a Pattern Giveaway


Remember how my mom sews really well and even has a few awesome patterns for sale?  Today I thought I'd show you the baby carrier cover she made for me.  AND she offered to give away a few baby carrier cover patterns to 3 lucky winners as well.


I definitely went girly on the fabric choices here.


So let me tell you why my mom's pattern rocks.  It works with all baby carriers.  It has really specific directions and suggestions for fabric.  It's been tested by many ladies.  It has a peek-a-boo opening to see the baby without removing the whole front.  It's lined.  AND, it's a cute 2 fabric design that will have many-a-mom stop you to ask where you got it.


Here are a few other ones she's made.


I love this houndstooth one.  You can find/purchase her pattern HERE in her etsy shop.


To enter the pattern giveaway, just leave ONE comment here, along with a way for me to contact you.  We'll announce three winners at the end of the week.  (The giveaway is open to anyone.  It's a PDF pattern, so there's nothing sent in the mail.)

Thanks for reading.

really liking this. does it discourage people that insist on touching baby that you really do not want them to even be breathing on her/him??
