The Very Hungry Caterpillar

When my children were much younger, we used to love this book!

Connor especially liked to poke his fat, squidy little fingers through the holes in the pages and laugh 🙂  So it was a real treat to make an Onbag with the very hungry caterpillar fabric – although looking at all the delicious food on the fabric did make my tummy rumble :LOL:

The inside of an Onbag Baby only has one pocket - and that is the zippered on at the back.

The pocket of the Onbag baby is usually rounded, so that it matches the shape of the bag :)

Amy butler Soul Blossoms Onbag baby

I’m not sure if I have introduced my mannequin to you all before? I have had her for quite a few years, and she has been used to model every baby carrier that I made as Daisy chain slings. Since I started creating Onbags instead of Mei tais, she has had a much easier life, and generally just stands quietly in a corner of my studio watching the world go by 😉

When I first got her, both my children were quite small….and they decided that she simply HAD to have a name. so they discussed it between themselves, with much whispering and the occasional furtive glance my way. In the end, they declared that her name should be Hedgie. Nothing else would do, and Mummy certainly wasn’t allowed to choose a more ladylike name :LOL:

So, Hedgie she has remained!

Hedgie is modelling the latest Onbag Baby, which is hot from my sewing machine!

It is made of purple cotton drill paired with the delightful Soul Blossoms sari fabric by Amy Butler.

My lovely mannequin "hedgie" is wearing the Onbag across her body.
