You know, I have some really pretty red fabric that would work perfect for this. This kind of carry looks like it would be so comfortable and easy. I have twins though, so I would have to wear one and not the other...I hate that.

You could wear the other one in the front in a mei tai probably. Or maybe in a sling.
