    Default DIY mei tai pattern?

    I think I'm a fairly capable sewer.. so I'd like to try to make a mei tai.. I've heard they're fairly simple to make??? am I right or do I need to be really good for it to be simple?

    Does anyone have a good pattern.. advice.. etc?

    obviously never made one, so looking for any suggestions on what kind to make (there are different kinds of mei tai's?) type of material etc?

    should I just say in advance.. thanks myrrah? lol

    they are all basically the same, just w/different twists so to speak... find the pattern you like & use the instructions you can follow

    This is the one I'm stalled in making... I am a first timer too.

    I've got the straps sewn on, it can support the weight of DD, I just never got motivated enough to finish off the front panel.
