Made me want to try again with my homemade Ergo. Putting him on my back was awesome, he stayed there for almost 1/2 hour while I was able to wash dishes, pick tomatoes, finish up some laundry, sort through his bigger clothes, it was so great!

Check us out!

So cute! I've gotten a lot done these past couple days, too, by wearing my 9-month-old on my back in my Mei Tai carrier. Now if I could just keep my toddler happy at the same time... ;-)

No pattern, I just looked at the pics and instructions on their site and fudged it. Its not as adjustable as theirs appears but it fits me.

I used a pair of dh's jeans that were too dirty to give to Goodwill. I just pieced it together until I got what I wanted. I lined it with terry cloth even though the jean was super soft. I used a ring instead of a buckle at the waist and the straps are just backpack straps.

Thats the first time I've used it for any length of time though. It was fun, I will definitely do it again.
