Make a Mei Tai or just buy?

So for those of you who have made your own MTs, would you say it's worth it? I've seen blogs quote that materials will cost around $35, but is that realistic? Also, some parts of the project seem to be a challenge. So I'd like opinions, did you think making a mei tai was worth it, or did you just wish you had bought one?

Re: Make a Mei Tai or just buy?

It was worth it to me, because I enjoyed the challenge of making one myself. As I recall, I only spent around $25 for materials, but it did take me several hours. Although my completed mei tai wasn't perfect, I was happy with it and it was neat to be able to customize everything (strap style and length perfect for me, colors/prints that I chose, etc.)
Basically, I think it depends on how you feel about the experience of making a mei tai. If it sounds like fun, then it's worth it. If it sounds like a hassle, then it's not worth the time it takes.
