I'm currently looking for a pattern for different types of baby slings and waiting for PUL to make more diapers. Also planning on making some PJ's for my and my Hubby.
http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/Baby/ has a bunch of patterns for DIY sling and Mei tais. Very easy to follow.

yes, but they have good sales and decent prices all around. And for a backpack carrier, you usually do a solid print for straps anyway, so the amount of patterned fabric you need is actually not that much. When I make a few, I will probably use some of the fabric for pants or a dress for dd, then cut a bit for the carrier.

Resurrecting a thread to share some finished objects and a work in progress!

Green wool wrap
- still needs buttons but other than that, it's done.

Turquoise mini everlasting wonder - I can't find my darning needle to finish it, but I just need to do the graft on the front, and then do the leg cuffs - maybe another hour's worth of work.

Grey wool cargo pants from Knitty - not quite halfway done with the first leg!
