There’s this weblog, Loobylu, of this girl who is a craftaholic. I haven’t paid a lot of attention to this blog before, although it’s hovered on my radar as something to check out. Who wouldn’t want to find out new cool things to make? Because I certainly have a lot of spare time on my hands.
We have some delicious goodness, people. We have fabrics that are just BEGGING to be made into something. About ten things pop into my head all at once. I hardly know where to begin. Given my current lifestyle, however, I do have one thing in particular in mind.
You see, I really want to carry Nathan on my back. In theory this is possible with a sling, but since the boy likes to STAND I am wary of putting him on my back with a simple loop of fabric holding him there. So I discovered, through the Milk Club, holders like the Sachi Carrier and Ergo Carrier, both of which are versions of something called an Asian Baby Carrier or Mei Tai, a traditional baby carrier from the far east. The thing is, I’m a round person and I am hesitant to spend that kind of money on something that might not fit me.
So what do I do? Try and make one, obviously. And who wouldn’t want a baby carrier sprinkled with Sushi? My god, I’m about to have a coniption (sp?). I’m supposed to be going to bed but my brain is spinning. Brain, stop it. You can look into this more tomorrow. That’s the point of this post. Really.
And also to remind myself to get a better icon for this category. Sheesh. And maybe I should rename it to something more crafty. Hmm.
