Bronwen Loves Dads

***WINNER PICKED 5/1 WITH RANDOM.ORG*** ***CONGRATULATIONS, anonymous (nosaints73)!!!***
his comment: I'm a new dad, I'd love to win a sling



I've written here before about my admiration for Bronwen Handcrafted. We recently received one of her new pouch slings to try out with Jasper. The catch? This one's for Bob!

It's from a new line of Dad Slings she has designed with babywearing fathers in mind. The fabrics are as elegant and luxurious as we've come to expect, but the styling is even more streamlined to appeal to more masculine tastes. We received the olive cotton model, which is almost a subtle camouflage pattern.



Bob loved the colors and print immediately. The sling took a little bit of getting used to but he likes how small and lightweight it is and how he could fold it up into his pocket. He also likes how easy it is to get Jasper in and out of, especially compared to the front carrier he usually uses. He prefers the front carrier because it distributes weight on both shoulders and allows both hands to be free, but there's no way he could stow that monster in his pocket, so this is a good option for him.



Bronwen Handcrafted's Dad Slings come in a variety of styles and textures, from dark denim to blue printed cotton shirting and even a black cotton alligator-print jacquard! My favorites are the ultrasuedes, though. One is plain and the other has a cuddly looking white minky plush lining.




Bronwen Handcrafted has added a lot of other good things to the inventory and opened an Etsy Store, too. I am absolutely smitten with the Chiapas necklace.



I always wish I had a Powerbook, but I want one even more now so I can carry it in this lovely red leather computer case.



The hand-hemmed Italian linen tea towels are enough to make me want to spend all day in the kitchen. Well, almost!
