Mei-Tai baby carrier with Tardis



Way back in November, I commissioned to a great girl (Kitrino) a Mei-Tai for my son. I made the front of the mei-tai and she finished the rest of it. It was love at first sight! The result was/is perfect! Our kid loves it, he immediately was able to sleep inside it (I had a very difficult time getting him to sleep during the day), and now we go everywhere with it. He instantly calms down (dah! naturally) inside my arms or his father’s arms. I would recommend a mei-tai to anyone who has a baby older than 1,5 months old, it is a perfect bonding “gadget”!

The Tardis was made using foundation paper piecing and some solids and Cotton+Steel fabrics from their basic line, and a great free pattern by Trillium Design, from her Doctor Who QAL.

Thank you Kitrino for making our dream-mei-tai and Trillium Design for a great pattern!

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.

This is an epic blending of nerdiness, quilting and babies. Genius idea. I’m sure Amy and Rory would have wanted one for Melody/River!
