3 Mar -- Lookie What I Made!

So I love my new carrier, especially to carry Jane on my back. But when we go outside it's been freezing and I've had to put her in the stroller with a cover or carry her in front with one of Dan's jackets zipped up over us. So I found this on the web and decided to give it a try. Ask my Mom and she'll agree that I'm a very impatient seamstress. I don't like patterns or measuring or doing anything by the book. I tend to take shortcuts that sometimes lead to disasters. This time it actually worked, though, and I'm in love with my new baby/mama jacket. All for a $10 cost of a thrift shop coat and some leftover fleece. Here's to a few more blustery days at the park!

I'm going to pretend I don't like it, and glare at you from across the playground.

That is so clever you should market it! I think there are other moms wishing for something like it.
