That is sooo cool Abra! Love it!
I just finished sewing a stuff bag for my Boba Carrier... It is the first major thing I have sewed (I usually fix things or make pj pants for DH)... and I didn't have a pattern. Just kinda winged it :) I think there is even enough room to roll my fleecy cover around the carrier, and they will both fit (like I said, I winged this one). I found that my carrier was always lying around, or crumpled up in the bottom of the stroller (I take the stroller on longer trips, but eventually do wear Eli along the way). Now it is neat and tidy ... and well ... I love the fabric too!

Autumn, nice job, the fabric is super cute!
Ash - No, I don't really have a pattern. We copied the idea of the sculpt-a-bowl (video in the link below). We cut 18" circles out of a roll of mesh from Home Depot, then we glued wool felt on each side and I stitched the edges. I can take a picture of all the parts if you'd like to see. I couldn't find any tutorials or patterns for such a thing online, so we just made it up.
Mine, too. And, mine is from the 70's. It weighs eleventy-hundred pounds.
Cute bag, Autumn!
I've been knitting up quick scarves as Christmas presents using that mesh yarn stuff that looks like ruffles. Super quick. I'm still working on Jasper's sweater. I'm lengthening a scarf I knit dd1 a while back. And I'm finishing a Waldorf-esque bunting doll for Jasper. Lotsa work to do!
Thanks! And you totally can! It was so easy! I have a friend that sells them on Etsy and she told me the supplies to get and I used her figurines for inspiration and went from there. Really fun and really easy. I accomplished these during Avery's nap while the older two were out of town.
Yay for crafting inspiration! I just made myself go to the craft store once I got some coupons. I hit up Michael's, Hobby Lobby, and JoAnn's with 40% and 50% off coupons to buy the paints, glue, Mod Podge, and brushes. The felt and peg people are inexpensive. Everything dries so quickly that I was able to paint the peg people and mod podge them in the same day. The next day I put the felt on and they were done! So easy!
Here's my first experiment. I made some rookie mistakes but it only took about half an hour and used a tiny bit of material.
