MYSTERY HANDWOVEN #1

Tenth Doctor. In order to be the king of the fans, you need all the right equipment. Check out the details on this one: silk tie just askew, fancy flap on the chest pocket, 100% wool pinstripe suiting, it's all there. TARDIS applique on the reverse. Why yes, that is a glow-in-the-dark light on top, thanks for asking. That placard on the TARDIS is the size of a quarter, and the embroidered working is largely legible!

MYSTERY HANDWOVEN #2

Meeyoo Tomo, with an upgrade to navy blue linen reverse.

MYSTERY HANDWOVEN #3

TARDIS Toile. With a Weeping Angel Toile on the reverse of the hood. Because we love babies and want them to sleep well at naptime.

MYSTERY HANDWOVEN #4

Echino Birds of a Feather. I love Echino prints, they're amazing. Especially the ones that come on the cotton/linen blend. But they are huge, huge prints, so if you send one send 2 yards, because I'll probably need it all in order to get a match on the hood and body (with plenty of scrap leftover for a dozen projects). Here we got a little creative. It's not a perfect match, so just squint and tilt your head a bit.

May's Custom Wrap Conversion Mei Tais

May seems like a long time ago! So many pretty wraps came through the studio in the month of may, and so many pretty wrap conversion mei tais headed out the door to distant and exotic locations.

ObiMama Basic  Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

Woven Baby, Serenity. Converting this wrap perfected it, if I may say so. When I opened the package a neighbor was over. I made her stop everything and get a lesson on why handmade baby carriers made from handwoven fabric are so much more special than you'd suspect.

ObiMama Premium Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

Stewed Rhubarb, Peace Sign. It's hard to find but there's a tactile middle market in the shape of a dove, I was able to squeeze it into the sleep hood at the very top. Would you love to wear this? These are my colors.

This New Zealand-bound carrier is fully loaded with zen straps, neck roll, knee pads, adjustable hood, ring waist, toy loops, sleep hood loops, tattoo, and even a pocket! This wrap is a-typically narrow, and I had to hold my breath the whole time I was cutting. No margin of error whatsoever! But I got all the pieces, and what's more the hood and body match on both sides!

Uppymama Iris Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

This is the third time I've converted this particular wrap, and each time I get something different. Here I used the pin striped middle marker on both hood panels, and I love the results. One of my favorite things that Kombi-folded straps allow me to do is get the full appearance of the original wrap from rail to rail into the conversion itself. From the top of the body to the bottom of the waistband I've re-created the full gradation of the wrap. On each side of the body the grad is going a different direction.

To top it all off: I've created our signature wrap scrap feathers, which are totally removable using the almost-invisible fascinator loops built into the sleep hood.

Artipoppe Two Birds Mono Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

I love the larger bird in this motif, and of course the monochromatic grey and black color are super fly. If this were mine I would wear it every day.

Artipoppe Folded at Sea Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

I am endlessly fascinated by how many ways Artipoppe gives us cotton. This one has a pleasing flannel quality, very thick and soft. I can't tell if I prefer the grey side or the purple side better--in cases like this the best answer is always both!

Girasol Tahoe Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

I remember when this colorway first came out. If you've ever been to Lake Tahoe you'll understand how this wrap got its name. I loved driving along the edge of this mountain lake on the California/Nevada border: the water is crystal clear, icy cold, and full of granite boulders.

Pavo Duet Hibiscus Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

The aptly named Duet: each side of this wrap is completely different down to the tiny shots of color. I always want to honor those differences as I convert a woven wrap into a mei tai to give you the biggest bang for your buck. Done here in horizontal stripes, with an all black side, and an all red side. I can't wait to see this one in action!

Pavo Duet Hibiscus Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai with Ring Waist

What a treat it was to receive two of the same wrap on the same day, but with specifications that will yield two completely different mei tais! This version uses the opposite side of the wrap to make the hood pop, and called for vertical stripes. The addition of a ring style waist is the finishing touch.

Oscha Roses Islay Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

You can never go wrong with roses, each time I work on this wrap it's like the first time. Which is to say it's love. I'm in love.
While a pale colored baby carrier may be intimidating for some, I personally am a huge fan! They don't show spit-up, and they don't get sun bleached. But hey, to each her own.

Natibaby Invisibility Cloak Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

Round glasses and a lightning bolt scar. If you know, then you know. A maroon side and a gold side--do you think they chose those colors on purpose? Hmmm....

January Custom Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

January was a busy month, as we got back to work in earnest after the holidays. After some hard work, we're back on schedule and have already begun to February's custom conversion. I love the new system we're using now, which builds in enough time for my clients to put a deposit on a slot, find the right wrap, and even chat about specifications in babywearing groups if desired. From a practical standpoint having your order form ship along with your wrap cuts down on the guess work and double checking--a huge relief!

I hope you enjoy browsing these albums.

Didymos Aurora Indio Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai.

I've been anxious to convert this wrap, and it definitely lived up to my expectations. What I particularly love is that I was able to cut it in such a way to get two different sections of color on each side--one carrier with two different looks.

Meeyoo Ami Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

A delicious sherbet of a cotton handwoven. This one was perfection to work on, very even and supple. I'm in love with the raspberry to tangerine ombre. There's something incredibly special about taking a handwoven wrap and creating a hand sewn artisan mei tai.

Artipoppe Two Birds Jade Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

That easy-to-recognize MC Escher motif, done here in cream and jade green by Artipoppe. I had just enough fabric to realize this carrier in full, but no detail has been left untouched. Enjoy!

Oscha Teo Ghanima Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

With its deep red borders and striking geometric motif, this mei tai is absolutely unforgettable. Pattern placement on both sides was a no-brainer, and yet the front and the back are still very different from each other! It's love.

Didymos Indio Sole Occidente Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

Another example of perfect color shifting from Didymos. I know this carrier will make both mother and baby glow like the jewels they are (I know her, so I get to say things like this).

Girasol Starlight Basic ObiMama Wrap Conversion Mei Tai

Just when you thought a rainbow was a rainbow. I had so much fun cutting this one, each rail gave me a new variation on an old classic.

We're looking for a few willing pioneers. As you know our US customers are limited in fabric choices now for wrap conversion mei tais, and we have never offered custom welter weights. We love to make you happy, and so we'd like to try to find a middle ground. Starting now, we have a new method! You can buy a semi-custom WWMT slot, send in your own suitable fabric (32 inches x 25 inches usually works, add half a yard if you are particular on pattern placement) of your choice of fabric, select black linen or undyed linen for your straps, and select black linen or undyed linen for your body panel. Allow one month to build you new carrier. Please note, your semi-custom will have everything a ready-to-ship WWMT does: medium linen kombi straps, medium padded waist, knee pads, adjustable hood, and an internal linen layer.

What kind of fabric will you send? Will it be an exotic wrap? A used wrap? A dyed wrap? A handwoven?

But wait, there's more. We'd also like to make a matching ObiMini for you! Ice cream, meet Cherry-on-top.
