DIY Mama: Organic Cotton Drool Pads for the Ergo

Ferryn Maia 6 weeksWhew, has it been awhile since I’ve posted on here, or what?! We’ve been busy bees here in Portland—getting to know our beautiful, spirited, Goddess of Spring, Ferryn Maia and moving into a new apartment has been a rush. Change has brought (and still is bringing) much-needed refreshing cleansing on all fronts to make room for new journeys.

In other news: I have re-visited my sewing machine! My sister-in-law (technically or not, that’s what you are, Hope <3) asked if I would make my adorable niece some drool pads for their Ergo carrier—Vi is at the age where everything must go in her mouth. I finally got around to finishing them last night, and I am so excited about how they turned out! The pattern and planning took me much longer to work out than I expected, but once I figured out the first one, I streamlined the second.

My goal was to make her a set of reversible pads, using organic cotton and batting, with reversible snaps. This project was so fun to figure out, especially because I had never used snaps before on any project, less make them reversible. I can see myself making more in the future, or at least putting up the pattern (and DIY tutorial?) for other crafty mamas to use. I am thinking of adding on a ribbon loop or two next time to enable toys or pocket-carry books to be hooked onto the straps. Any other add-ons or improvements?
