Finally my latest creative attempts!

My absolute favourite Mei Tai! I got a FQ of Amy Butler French Wallpaper in Duck Egg, and it matched so nicely with some turquoise bamboo velour I bought from Fairy Fabrics. So I quilted the two together with some cotton wadding in the middle to make an ultra lush and soft Mei Tai. The waist band I interfaced, and added cotton wadding and quilting as well to make it really strong but soft. It is so so so comfortable! I wish I could have a ride in it! Aston had his first sleep in it today while Vienna was at kindergym with me chasing around after her. Even with all that padding it still folds down quite compactly too.
And DH's BBQ Apron with Vienna's handprints appliqued on the pocket.

I'm working on my Doll Quilt for the EB doll quilt swap which I will blog tomorrow. I finished my first block today and it's looking okay thankfully! lol.

Love Kristi

Kristi, these are awesome. Well done. Beautiful fabric. The mei-tei looks really difficult to make and I'm sure your little one will be nice and snug.
