Take off

We are all packed and ready to go for our nocturnal flight! Nine pieces of luggage, two adults to carry the luggage and 5 children to keep in line; this requires some organization if we safely want to reach our destination!
I love using a baby carrier and our kids love to be carried around. One kid in a baby carrier that means, one kid less to stick its fingers where they don’t belong; leaves me with only four children to keep an eye on.
This year I reduce the number of children running around till 3. Jade goes in the baby carrier and Felix sits on one of the bags!

A normal stroller means extra kilos to check in and an extra item to push, so carrying Felix on one of the bags is ideal.
The bag does not fall over when normally loaded.

The seat as well as the back of the seat are strengthened with a thin MDF plate. The MDF wood is covered with mousse to make it a comfortable and soft seat for Felix.

Two big belts keep the seat in place on the luggage bag and a three-piece smaller belt keeps the baby safely seated while walking around.

He needed to get used to it but now he loves to sit and being carried around on the luggage bag.

The seat can be folded in so it does not take any space when not in use.

If only I would have invented this system a year earlier! That would have made our trip with my broken collar bone a lot easier!
Have a good summer holiday and maybe we meet in Belgium!

Fabric: The elephant fabric is Trefle Elephants in Clementine and Navy from Kokka, the fabric was purchased at Drygoods Design.

Pattern & idea: homemade - Curl Up
