Have you noticed the young women carrying their infants in the most close and comfortable looking contraption? This is not new by any means, but a rendition of the earlier methods of carrying small babies. It must be very fashionable, as it is not uncommon to see young mothers with their babies strapped close to their bodies. This type of carriage leaves the mother’s hands free to do other tasks, but gives them an up close and personal contact with their babies. 

With the popularity of the carriers, some can be quite expensive. If you have basic sewing skills, you can make your own for a fraction of the cost. 

Choose a fabric that breathes easily and make one in less than an hour. Patterns are readily available on the Internet by Googling how to make a baby carrier.
