Finished Baby Sling
I'm so happy with my new sling. It's not a fancy one but it is functional; I tested it with Jane and she weighs 35 lbs. It was so easy to make and because it went so fast, very satisfying as well. I wanted to get one for the twins but I knew it would be too hard to carry around just one for any length of time and not feel guilty about the other. I know that doesn't really make sense but I'm glad I'll have one this time around.
Below you can see how the sling is worn, though this isn't my picture. It's from an Etsy site that sells them at a very reasonable price. If you want to make your own sling, here are the instructions I followed, though here are a lot of different ways to make slings, with and without rings. If you want rings you can get them here, they are specifically made for baby slings and safe unlike the ones they sell at Joann's.
