The SweetPod pattern is beautifully laid out and easy to follow. I must admit, I was intimidated to get started because this is different that anything else that I've sewn before. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I did print the pattern... the pattern pieces line up perfectly and the instructions and diagrams are very detailed. It is obvious that a lot of time and expertise went into creating this fabulous pattern. I had a ton of fun making my SweetPod, and can honestly say that I didn't get frustrated once during this project.
I'm so giddy over my new SweetPod... I love, love, LOVE it! Baby Tess is still a bit too young for it (it's for 15 to 35 pounds), but she seemed happy enough while I was using her to model it. Jessica even has videos on how to wear it here.
See, now you want one too, huh!?
If you're interested in making one, I ordered my hardware, webbing and closed-cell foam from Outdoor Wilderness Fabrics. Shipping was about $10. For ease of ordering, here is the breakdown of my order (This is the hardware needed to make one SweetPod Carrier):
I purchased my open cell foam from my local Joann's store.
