I just had to show off my new baby carrier. I spent about a day working on this & it turned out better then I could have hoped for! The outer material is made from ACU (aka military/army) material. I wanted something my husband could use too. Plus, I just like it. The inner material is soft micro fleece in an off-white. I wanted something comfy next to Jamie & this was the closest thing that would match. The pattern I used comes from THIS website. It's under copywrite & I have no plans to make these to sell anyway since there is too much liability in it. But if you want to make your own, then go for it!
