This is a homemade Mei Tai that I used with ds. Let me stress, this is amateur sewing -- I topstitched the straps (not very well in my simple sewing machine) and then wound up sewing one of the strap upside down. This is completely cosmetic, but I'm a perfectionist. The shoulder straps are approximately 55 1/2" and the waist straps 26 1/2". The pocket portion is 19" in height, 17" width. It's a grey twill with a blue diamond brocade fabric. It worked well for ds and I. The only thing that I wish I had done differently was make the shoulder straps wider. They are 2" wide, so over time they do become uncomfortable. I used to pad them with those padded carseat strap adapters you can use for kids. If you are a sewer, you can remove the straps and pad them. I used the pattern from <a href="http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/Baby/asian.html" target="_blank">sleepingbaby.net</a>. Here are the pictures:<br><br><a href="http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j123/brownelf/For%20Sale/AmateurmadeMeiTai.jpg" target="_blank">Mei Tai</a><br><br><a href="http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j123/brownelf/For%20Sale/DetailofMeiTai.jpg" target="_blank">http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j1...ilofMeiTai.jpg</a><br><br>
My mom's camera didn't capture it well, but it's a dark blue brocade with gold and copper dots in the center of the diamonds. I'm asking $18ppd, but I'm negotiable. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> PM with interests and/ or offers.<br><br>
I'm also willing to trade for large bamboo fitted dipes or prefolds, and hemp inserts and prefolds.<br><br>
Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">:
