Sew Paradise

no more sweaty babywearing!

New baby slingWell, at least not because of a black carrier! I sewed a gorgeous ring sling out of a celadon green silk duppioni, with accents of teal (vintage) taffeta and teal aluminum sling rings. It’s just beautiful, a mix of that Caribbean pale greenish white and turquoise that is so gorgeous. Like beach glass and ocean blue all mixed into one. And it’s cool – the fabric is lightweight and breathable and I felt so much better wearing him in the heat of the day outdoors in this sling.

The pocket I constructed out of a band of turquoise taffeta at the bottom, and pocket flap. The pocket itself is of the same silk. I opted for this instead of zippers (it will get snaps soon as I can get into the workshop to hammer a few – and this means when the baby is NOT in it!) because zippers require two handed operations, and I wanted a one-handed grab into the pocket for a burp cloth or my phone.

Next up a Meghan Nielsen nursing dress. And then a breastfeeding friendly version of the Hot Patterns Three Graces cowlneck tee. Christine Jonson’s getting a nursing makeover too – the two-layered Keyhole top and the new banded neck top from Travel Trio One are also getting nursing versions. I need clothes – it’s not even 10 am and I have been spit upon at least two or three times (and let’s not discuss leaky diapers…)

I'm Ann. I've been sewing since I was 9. My first project was a denim wrap skirt. Thrifting is a way of life for me - both eco-chic and financially savvy.
