bear carrier

This bear carrier was a present for a little friend who turned three this summer. Wherever she goes, she's always accompanied by her teddybear. Like a real mother bear, she'll carry her cub in her mouth when both her hands are occupied doing something else (for example, when holding hands with two of my kids). 

So I figured, she could use a little bear carrier, to keep her hands (and mouth) free.

As you can see below, the carrier basically has the shape of a big diaper, with velcro straps to close it, and adjustable shoulder bands.

The lining fabric is from Mies en Moos, the outer fabric is orange baby rib, also used here and here. I used fleece to give the carrier some stiffness, and added yellow piping as a contrasting detail.
