Has anyone here sewn a mei tai from a pattern before?  Could you share the link to your favorite pattern?  I have a little sewing experience but would like something not too complicated... Thanks!!

I have not sewn one, but have heard great things about this pattern: http://sewliberated.com/products/mei-tai-baby-carrier-sewing-pattern

(She also has a great blog, and is a fellow Montessorian - small world!)

This is the pattern I use. http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/Baby/man-tai.shtml I love it because it has pictures & very detailed, step by step instructions. Regular sewing instructions confuse the heck out of me. I've made several really great MT's using this pattern (although I don't put the pocket in mine).
