Handmade Christmas 2012: Doll Carrier for Ellie

The pattern for this doll carrier is in the same book as the doll pattern that I used to make Ellie’s doll.  I’ll be wearing our new baby a lot so I figured that Ellie might want to wear her baby too!

I love this bird print and it was fun to finally find the perfect project for it!  (I’ve used bits and pieces of it but never a large piece.)  I used coordinating solids in green, yellow, and blue for the lining, along with black corduroy for the exterior.

It’s a little bit big but hopefully that means she’ll be wearing her baby for a long time!

After opening this, Ellie immediately started calling it her “baby backpack” and also loaded it up with all sorts of other toys.  A big success! 🙂
