Ring Sling

sasha
Mom helped me make a ring sling to use with Veronica when she was a baby. She made one with muslin and I made one with a nice baby flannel. I needed a new sling with Sasha. I got a Munchkin one from Target and just do not like it. Neither does Sasha. I think I must not be using it right or something.

Anyway, my Hobo Mama friend is giving away a Mei Tai baby sling. (You can enter the giveaway, it ends Nov 20th!) I followed some links from there and learned how to make a no-sew ring sling. Baby flannel was on sale last week at JoAnn. So, I bought some fabric and ordered some sling rings. The rings arrived yesterday, so I put the sling together last night. I tested it out today and it took 3 tries to get it sized right for Sasha and I. By try #3, Sasha was sick of it. Still, I packed it up and we headed to the store...

It was perfect! See?



Sasha slept through almost the entire shopping trip. I still want to try the Mei Tai style of sling, too, so hopefully I'll win that one! If not, I also saw a no-sew way to make that one.

That is so totally adorable!
I am heartily impressed that you put together a ring sling in one night, no-sew or not. And look how sweet little Sasha is! She looks so comfy.
