Handmade Reversible Pouch

Last night hubby was in the mood for taking photographs so I took the opportunity to request for some babywearing photos =)

adam loves the measuring tape =)


I made this reversible pouch last week after attending the MBW gathering. Jess taught me how to make one! Thanks Jess! I had some beautiful cotton fabric lying around that I was gonna turn into skirts but I thought a pouch will be so much more fun! I love the green flower fabric above…you’ll see more of this fabric made into other things I promise..

other side of the pouch


I love pouches! Yay! Soo convenient…and can be as pretty as you want it to be =) it was so comfortable especially for Adam. He took his nap rather happily in this (we were at a loud kenduri). For me it’s also comfortable…although it starts to hurt after about 45mins I think…it’s meant to be worn for shorter periods, as I mentioned before. But it’s awesome for quick trips and around the house and occasions where he needs to be popped in and out….

backview - adam is still munching on the tape..

However, I didn’t get very nice comments from other people while wearing this. Many gave me the bibik/maid/Jawa “compliments”. But I guess that’s standardla…some people did examine properly and gave nicer comments like “ Eh siap ade “seat” la kat sini (the padding)” “Selesa la dia dlm tu..”.

Hopefully the Malaysian perspective of only bibik wearing baby will change slowly…so rugi if only bibik gets to bond with your baby…

*hubby took some photos of me wrapping with Adam too last night. Will update tomorrow.

I love your blog especially when you wrote about babywearing.My friends gave the same opinion of "bibik" image when I use baby sling to carry my baby,haha.But it's okey,they don't know the FUN of doing that...
btw,your baby,Adam is so cute.
Keep writing ya!
Take care.

aida,
if possible can u show pict. steps by steps from beginning...from before u put Adam into it. can arr? (buat mcm mami hafiy tjuk solat dgn bby tu)

MommyAdam said...

salzahari,
i'll try get some photos. tapi i'm no expert. plus i only know the hip/tummy carrying position since my baby dah besar tak boleh craddle carry..kalau u nak better info on how to put on pouch, better refer to Little pods punya website..senang paham..
