First of all, cupcakes are yum. Ingrid agrees, although she only really cares about the frosting bit.
And lastly, I found a tutorial on how to make a mei tai, gave it a try, and it turned out rather well I think. I didn't have long enough ties but they still tie so I'm not worried. Although it said to use a heavy weight fabric and I think it would be fine with regular cotton, maybe doubled? The stuff I used is really stiff and makes it hard to tie a tight knot. But it's cute! I used Amy Butler fabric on one side and a cool orange paisley on the other. The ties were really hard to sew around, so they are wonky, but nothing I think will endanger my child as I wear her. Yay for sewing!!
