This block was inspired by my love of my son and baby carriers (but mostly my son). Wrapping my son up in a carrier so that I could be hands free to go for walks and do chores gave me a much needed sense of freedom, and I know so many others can relate. I hope this pattern gives you all the warm fuzzy feelings as you sew and think about those baby carrying days. If you’re in the midst of the baby carrying days, all I can say is you’ve got this!
