Jenny’s Rainbow HuX-Ring

This has been the most nerve-wrecking carrier I have made thus far – I just needed to get it right for Jenny, who had a very clear vision of what her carrier needed to look and feel like. This custom wrap conversion was made from a Girasol Double Rainbow in a purple weft and a Natibaby Rainbow wrap exclusive to Fluff-n-Stuff. The artwork was made from Girasol Northern Lights wrap scraps and a bamboo fabric for the clouds.

After lengthy testing and product development, Jenny’s is the first HuX-Ring I made as a custom order to ensure safety and comfort for the newest member of the HuXling custom carrier range.

It’s a Pure wrap conversion measuring a customised 16″ high and 17″ wide, which meant that the side rings went 0.8cm higher up than on the tester, which was 2.5cm higher overall.

It’s a fully reversible carrier and features artwork on one side of the adjustable flat hood and a rainbow chevron on the Girasol side of the hood.

The padded wrap straps are internally lined with cotton drill to enhance the carriers durability. The padding is 13″ long and the overall strap length is 185cm to the longest taper to enable using them as a chest strap. If you purely want them as side straps, you can reduce this length to approx. 150cm.

The double thickness waist strap features the HuXling pleat and is also internally lined – as are the side loops that hold the rings.

If you wanted a single layer waiststrap, the fabric requirement for the HuX-Ring would be reduced as this Rainbow HuX-Ring used up 1.4m of Natibaby Rainbows and almost all of a size 6 Girasol (RR) Double Rainbow purple weft.

I hope the following photos will encourage you to dream up your very own HuX-Ring – the more creative the better – so please get in touch.

Onyx Mei Tai

Sometimes all that is needed to express pure beauty is simplicity.

This is an unpadded Pure wrap conversion made from a Little Frog Onyx wrap with an internal layer of C&C wrap fabric.

It’s a classic sized HuXling carrier measurin 16″ wide and 17″ high from the waistband.

It’s the first HuXling carrier to come without any padding at all so it’s very light and compact.

The straps are gathered wrap straps, which provide extra comfortable support when spread across baby’s bottom.

Agate Butterflies Mei Tai Wrap Conversion

Here comes a lovely in-stock HuXling carrier perfect for the current sunny weather and to brighten up any grey days throughout the year.

This wrap conversion is made from a Little Frog Sunny Agate wrap and features some applique butterflies with some freemotion embroidery on their wings and some little blossoms. The wrap was purchased from the lovely Susan at ShowmeSlings.

It has hood loops to tie up the hoodie and to use as a neckrest and also comes with standard leg padding.

It’s a toddler-sized carrier measuring 18″ wide above the waistband and 19″ tall.

The straps are padded wrap straps measuring approximately 215cm to the longer taper.

Agate Butterflies is a pure wrap conversion with an inner layer of C&C wrap fabric and is also fully reversible.

The topstitching was done with light cream Gutermann thread. Please follow all washing and care instructions and all safety guidelines whenever using your HuXling. This HuXling was started in August 2013 and completed in March 2014.

To purchase, please go to the HuXling store now (if it is not there anymore, it has sold).

Indio Holunder Mei Tai

I had been waiting for a very long time to convert this beauty!!! I know that Indios are not amongst the more popular wraps to work with amongst converters, but I just couldn’t resist this one …

It’s a custom sized wrap conversion measuring 19″ wide and 20″ high. It has an internal layer of strong, very heavy-weight cotton drill and the thread used for it was Gutermann 391 (for future reference).

It comes with pleated wrap straps, leg padding, a padded waist and a hoodie.

Aren’t the colours just divine?

Sternenzauber Conversion II

Here is Alys’ full buckle wrap conversion made purely from a Sternenzauber wrap.

Natibaby exclusively made Sternenzauber for the NATTA Facebook group in June 2013. Sternenzauber consists of 70% cotton and 30% hemp comes in the colours of indigo and white.

This wrap conversion comes as a full buckle carrier with 15″ long buckle straps and a matching adjustable flat hood. It is 18.75″ wide and 20″ high, which should be perfect for a larger toddler or smaller pre-schooler.

It is fully reversible and is a pure wrap conversion with an internal wrap layer of C&C wrap fabric.

Safety guidelines and care instructions must be followed at all times to avoid accidents, injuries and/or damage to the carrier.

Here are the photos of HuXling’s second Sternenzauber:

Girasol Harvest Wrap Conversion

This HuXling custom wrap conversion was made into a mei tai with hoodie measuring 18″ wide by 19″ high just above the waistband.

This mei tai wrap conversion comes with HuXling pleated wrap straps, leg padding and acorn artwork featuring the first freemotion work on a HuXling carrier (after 2 years of practice on items for personal use only).

I truly love the colours and was very pleased with how the acorns and leaf turned out.

Sternenzauber I – Full Buckle Wrap Conversion

How incredibly lucky was I when I managed to buy a brand new Sternenzauber carrier from Bianca at Bellely in 2013?! Thank you so much, Bianca!

It took me long enough to decide to work with it and I was very grateful when many lovely mamas got in touch to express their interest and so I managed to maximise this size 7 wrap to create to PURE Sternenzauber wrap conversions – with a combination Sternenzauber waiting to be finished and sold as an in-stock carrier within the next 2 months.

It took me over a week to measure and cut the wrap because I needed to make sure that I had not forgotten about any part of the carrier at all. My main aim was to create two carriers out of this wrap without the need to supplement any part with a different wrap – I am so glad I managed to do it.

This first Sternenzauber is a PURE wrap conversion with an inner C&C wrap layer and measures 19″ wide by 20″ high just above the two-part buckled waistband.

It is fully reversible and has standard leg padding with extra squish and a flat adjustable hood.

The buckled straps measure 15″ in length, are foam padded and have reversible loops for fastening the hood straps onto.

Care and wash instructions are the same as for other HuXling carriers: wash at 30 degrees on a low spin inside a pillow case and if possible remove the buckles before washing. Do not tumble dry.

Here are the photos for the first Sternenzauber, Kirsty’s Sternenzauber – what do you think?

 

Meander Solina Onbuhimo

I got the opportunity to transform a Meander Solina wrap into an onbuhimo from a local mama. It is truly amazing to see the huge progress babywearing has made over the last 8 years. When I started babywearing 8 years ago, I knew of no other local babywearers and now there are many local slingmeets and sling libraries all over the UK!

This wrap conversion measures 18″ wide at the top, 16″ wide in the middle and 18″ wide above the waistband. It measures 20″ high and is meant to be worn apron-style, but can also be worn non-apron style.

It has a PURE inner wrap layer and the 180cm long straps are padded to wrap straps.
