New Year??

I was going to post "Happy New Year!" but my first thought was, "Where did the OLD year go?!" This year was FLOWN by! It's been crazy with the HUGE release of the Gemini, our super soft drooling pads, and even two new bECO Mini prints

I hope your year has been a wonderful as ours. Enjoy your time with family and friends and stay safe! Lots of bECO lOVE!

The Perfect Piece of Fabric

Have you ever been in this story before?

"Once upon a time, a crafty momma was wandering through the forest (er...hobby store, or on Etsy, or at a yard sale) when, suddenly, something stood out to her. It was like a glowing light all around one piece of fabric. The perfect piece of fabric. She bought it and began to dream about which perfect project was worthy of the perfect fabric. There was only enough for ONE project, so it had to be perfectly perfect, and she couldn't mess it up."

That sounds a little like the story that Beco Mom McKinley found herself in. 
See what she writes:

I did quite a bit of research on which type of carrier is the best for baby and, after all that, like countless other savvy moms, have decided yours is definitely the greatest!! However, now that I am in love with it and HAVE to have it, I can't find the ones I like for sale anywhere! I see that there are many limited edition and custom styles so it makes sense that I've had a hard time tracking them down. 
So, I've had the most fantastic idea and I am so excited! I have this very special, very unique swatch of fabric I've been saving until I could find the right project for it and I think I just found it: I'm going to sew it to the front of one of your metro black carriers and it's going to be super fab! 
Let me know what you think,
thanks again for all your help!!

This is fabric she had saved: 

A month or so later, I received this email from McKinley:
Jack LOVE love LOVES his new carrier [and, so do I!!], thanks again for everything, couldn't have done it without you!

and the sweetest picture!
Yay for fairy tales that come true!
