So, I’m currently 7 months pregnant and was researching about the different kinds of wrap style baby carriers, and let me tell you… they are expensive! I love how beneficial they are for baby and mom but spending upwards of $50 for one just seemed a little bit much, plus they are all solid and not as cute as I would like them to be.

We are all totally stoked on these new quilted cottons from Riley Blake! They are brand new, and already super popular! These fabrics feature some of Riley Blake’s most popular designs: chevrons, skulls, mustaches, and glasses! Each fabric is backed with a complementary polka-dot, and quilted using a soft poly batting!
