Another sling, boy style

My sewing group suggested that we sew baby slings as our current project, which I thought was a great idea!  I love my slings, and they are a super simple project.  Tuesday we got started...
and finished!!  In our two hour class period all six of us made a sling, start to finish!  That includes the time it took me to explain the process, although these ladies were sharp. They didn't need much help from me.
Since most of my slings were made with Myra in mind, they run on the girlie side, and I wanted something a little more gender neutral for my wee man.  Mitch suggested camo, but I have to wear it too and camo does not mesh well with my wardrobe.  I went with chocolate brown, bound in forest green.  It's a nod to camo.
If you'd like more info on slingmaking, I wrote about it here.  Both Duncan and I are very happy with this one!

  2. Baby slings didn't appear on the homesewing radar until my 3rd or 4th young 'un (it's truly sad that I don't remember! 3rd...I think...). Same thing with the nursing mother patterns. Sigh. Where were they 10 years earlier??? Life changing! Love your sling...but I especially love those photos. Those are scrapbook worthy for sure!!! So sweet!

  6. This is great. What kind of fabric is that? I make these quite often. I've never bound the edges, though. I like the finished look the binding gives, so I will do that from now on.
