This is Miss Maggie Rabbit! I spent a couple of delightful weeks before Easter slowly stitching her by hand late at night. She is eventually for our daughter, but not quite yet.

You can purchase either the pattern, or the kit (sold out, but more are coming) on Alicia Paulson's site.

A babywearing Maggie!! I recently sat down and sewed up a little sling for her. Fast and easy! I thought it would be fun to do a little tutorial, so here it is. Please bear in mind that my machine sewing skills are at about the level of someone who is one week into Home Ec classes. I'm a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants/hack sewer.

Feel free to enjoy this little tutorial! I'm sure plenty of you have awesome skills and will greatly improve on it!
