So, I've done it, I've joined the world of Blogdom. This blog will primarily be a space for me to spruik my wares......until I get my etsy store figured out. To start off with I have on offer my very first podegai baby carrier. The actually started life as a mei tai but was too big so I transformed it into a beuatiful podegai. hand dyed lavender and mint, soft baby cord surround a gorgeous print from the wonderful women of Prints Charming. Hand printed in their little studio in Annandale, Australia. Free machine embroidered spirals and leaves decorate and reinforce the padded straps. Reversing to the gypsies garden fabric. I love this fabric! The colours, the pattern, just gorgeous! I have free machine embroidered over applique leaves and spirals for adornment and the cord at the bottom of the carrier is also embellished with free machine embroidery. One section did slightly gather when I was working my magic....I have adjusted the price accordingly.....it doesn't effect the structure and only effects the beauty slightly. Patchwork ends of the straps, leaf embroidery along edges and reinforced seams are all part of the artymama range. All my carriers and clothing are one off, never to be repeated designs. I follow the flow of the streams of inspiration when I create and it never flows in the same direction. So you can be assured that only you will own a podegai like this! The body ius approx 20" wide and 33" long. Straps are approx. 4" wide and 80" long. This wonderful carrier is US$185 (inc. postage) for international buyers or AUD$220 (inc.postage) for Australian buyers.
I also have a skirt to post but my wee one is calling through tears and screams!
