I have three Beco baby carriers. And only one baby. And only one body, for that matter. I have two Geminis and a Soleil. I’m not even sorry. I like keeping one in the house and one in the car. Though I’m still sort of annoyed that I bought them right before Beco added a sweet pocket to the Geminis. And have you seen the new designs? Oh my god. So cute. And while the lack of a pocket will likely forever vex me, I am no longer sad that I bought a boring black carrier before I knew better.
I took a leap of faith, and a deep breath, and I crossed my fingers and toes, and ordered a custom carrier and strap cover set from a nice lady on etsy. Nancy at MyCottageTime made these beauties for me.
The peacock feather fabric is so pretty! I found the fabric on etsy, too, from MoonaFabrics. Nancy was really easy to work with. I just sent her the link for the fabric that I liked, and she ordered it and adjusted my custom price accordingly. Which meant that I did not get to see the print in person until my package arrived, so I was really blown away by how pretty it is in real life. You could have knocked my over with a feather (carrier cover)! Ugh. Sorry. Irresistible puns are my kryptonite.
The total with custom fabric upcharge and shipping and an extra set of strap covers was $59.45. It was at my doorstep just ten days from purchase, which is great speed considering that Nancy first had to order and receive the special fabric. I love it. I just love it.
Did I mention that I love it?

Wow what a beautiful carrier!! I had never thought of looking for hand made ones from Etsy. Thats such a good idea. 🙂 maybe I will look…. 😉
We have four baby carriers and a sling for our twins. As the babes grow, the need for a carrier changed for us. and having a cute carrier makes you happy! 🙂 🙂
