Kristi from George & Ginger and Darcey from Sincerely Rylee Fabrics having been working hard behind the scenes to create the perfect Boho dress for this summer. With Kristi’s creative design skills and Darcey’s inspiring fabrics, they have nailed this dress. The Sincerely Rylee Dress by George & Ginger has released, and she is a beauty.

Love the idea of making your own. Talk about getting exactly what you need! 🙂
Today’s project is my first onbu but my 11th diy carrier at this point. I am not a professional seamstress I do no sell my carriers.

Features of this carrier
- Padded to wrap straps
- Leg out padding
- Hood compartment
- Padded protector at waist ring
Most of my directions here are based off this tutorial – from the fine and fair blog http://www.fineandfairblog.com/2013/10/tablecloth-mei-tai-tutorial-with-wrap.html 1.
