Let's chat about EVERYTHING Podaegi

Thread Starter 
Do you like yours? Where did you get it?

I love the traditional Podaegi's. So beautiful. Look at these pictures I just googled:

And look at this one:

This is a very informative site:

I think they are so beautiful. I've wanted to try one for a long time, I just think DH would have a fit if I bought one more carrier, especially since I just purchased a beautiful custom ABC. But after checking out the pages you posted and seeing this link I am going to MAKE one!!!! Yay! An excuse to buy more fabric...

We were just talking about this topic
http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=238617

I have one from www.freehandbaby.com that is reversible fleece and interlock that I'm just starting to use since my 3 mos old is gaining neck strength. I'm still experimenting with getting the ties right and such but I think I'm gonna like it a lot.
I also have a narrow blanket ordered from www.lovewrap.com

I have some fabric that I'd really like to try making one with too with the above listed directions (of course, this is with the other 3 carriers I'd like to try to make someday too )

Another podaegi fan here!

I bought one that was too small for me, fell in love with it, sold it, and bought another one custom made extra long from Lovewrap. It just arrived the other day and . It has navy straps and a dark red mottled blanket. Very thin and lightweight, and much less unweildy fabric than my wrap carrier.

It took a few tries to get the hang of wearing it, particularly getting the straps tight enough to keep dd close to me. And I looked really weird with it tied around my waist... made my boobs look HUGE and somehow detached from my body. So now instead of tying around my waist I am bringing the straps up and tying them above my breasts (sort of like where they are tied in a wrap carrier rucksack hold). MUCH more flattering.

Anyway I'm lovin it and excited to see another podaegi thread!

I'm thinking about getting the Ellaroo podaegi. This fabric:
http://store1.yimg.com/I/peppermintcom_1827_2457487

But, could someone tell me - can I do a high back carry? Jack loves to be able to look over my shoulder so I want that option.

I just want everything. I would like to get an Ellaroo wrap through the co-op but don't know if I can wait that long. I'm going to Florida in Mid March and would like a new carrier for the trip.

I'm also coveting a babyfairies mei tei in this fabric:

I swear. Its an addiction.

Thank you so much for posting those links!

I was going to post this week myslef asking where/if it might be possible to buy a true podeagi from Korea. You must be a better net-surfer than me, since I had no real luck!

Geez, sorry, I missed this. I got the thin batting because I heard/read (I think on the Babywearer reviews) that padded straps make it really hard to tie the traditional carry tight enough. I wasn't worried about comfort coz I have enough padding of my own! I haven't tried a shoulder carry yet... maybe I will when my dd gets home from her papa's.

Thanks so much for the links! I just ordered the celtic flowers print from Free Hand Baby, and I am so excited to try it out!!!! I have been looking at the Mei Tae and the Ella roo wrap . . . . but the mei tae is just sooooo beautiful!

[/SIZE]Hmmmmm . . . how to hide purchase from husband . . .

Ooh, neat! I was going to try to model one after a friend's, but this makes it very easy

Now to just make it to the fabric store....:LOL

Julie, let us know what you decide! I'm all curious, lol. I should have seen this thread before seeing you yesterday...you can definately do a high back carry (I kinda did one with Tristan), it just takes some practice. I don't think you could do it without wrapping over your shoulders, but it's definately possible

You know, I'm throwing around the idea of making one. I kind of want to make one with a wide blanket and see if I like it.

I'd love to see pics of anyone who has made their own podaegi!!!

I made one and it was REALLY easy. I'll get dh to take some pics of it with me and dd tomorrow. I used a pretty batik print for one side and a black quilted but not padded for the other side. Then for the straps I used black soft and wide canvas type webbing that they sell in the fabric store. I have no idea what most people who buy it use it for, but I saw it and it inspired me to try. It does kind of make my breasts look freakishly large, but they kind of do even when I'm not wearing it....

Well, mama, let's see it!

Does anyone know where I can find reviews on the Ellaroo podaegi with the long blanket?

:LOL ok, I actually took them yesterday. I'll post tonight.

Sorry this took so long, my computer was INFESTED with spyware. I think I've finally got it all off now, and am running at a decent speed. So here are my podeagi pictures.

Nice pictures, Sarah. Lucy looks so snug on your back. I love the colours in your podeagi.
Would it work to make one out of fleece? (I happen to have some left from another project.)

I have one that has a fleece body and twill straps and it works great. Not sure how fleece straps would work though
