Baby Sling


Here's a sling I made for a friend of mine who just had a baby girl. I based it on a sling that a friend made for me, and I believe she made it based on a sling she received as a gift. The gift that keeps on giving--right? So here it is. I love how it turned out. The floral fabric is by Tracy Porter (from JoAnn's). The more time I spent with it, the more in love I fell. Sigh. The inside fabric is a linen/cotton blend that is nice and soft. So the sling is fully reversible and I'm thinking the linen side should more or less match anything mom is wearing, if that matters to her....

All ready to go:

This was a quick and easy project that took 2 yards of fabric total. This could be my "thing" to give new moms, since quilting eats up too much time for me these days.

Great sling! What a great present for new Mums.

Belinda said...

What a fantastic gift, love it!!!

Megan said...

You clever, clever bunny! That's so cool.

Megan said...

PS - I think that fabric is really beautiful too.

I love the sling but the baby steals the show in this picture. That is the most angelic face!!

Well done that's brilliant, just what every new mother needs, and in a much really lovely fabric too.

Juast a quick note to say I've put your blog on my side bar, hope that's ok?

That is one great looking sling. And you wear it well. I never could get used a sling, but I tried. For it looks so natural and comfortable.

Ali said...

What a wonderful new mum gift. I never got on with a sling because my boys didnt like being plastered against me so tightly - your design looks more comfy for the baby (and that one's a cutie!).

Cathy said...

That is a beautiful sling! I think you are right, they are a great gift for moms. I paid $36 for one 3 years ago and ended up not using it much. I wish I had had a friend like you so I could have tried one without the big bucks.

Angela said...

That is perfect! I have been looking for a pattern for the New Native kind of sling forever and haven't found one. I don't like the big, bulky ones with rings. Yours is beautiful and trim and just great! Well done.
The babe is a cutie too. ;-)

Ruth said...

Great looking sling, very comfortable and stylish. It's a great gift.

kirsten said...

very very cute - i never tried a sling - so i don't know if i'm a 'sling-person'. that would be cool to make it your standard gift - people would love that!

keri said...

That is a great present, and one I'm sure new moms can always use.

beki said...

It looks so nice! I have been wanting to make one for myself, but haven't gotten around to it. Maybe one day soon...

Wendy said...

What a lovely gift and so useful.

capello said...

Cute! And a great idea too.

(And seriously, 59 bucks? yeosars!)

Karyn said...

What a fantastic gift, and it's soooo pretty!!

joyce said...

that's great! was it hard to make?

Green Kitchen said...

Looks great! I'm definitely a sling person. Luckily my second likes them too, my first didn't. And, I like the reversible thing, mine aren't.

Melissa said...

I love it and it's exactly what I've been looking for to make as well. My neighbor is having her 2nd baby in a few months, whom I watch her kids full time during the week. I was hoping to find a sling just like this for me to use with the newborn as I'll have 5 kids under 7 to take care of (3 of which are mine) and I only have a double stroller. I'll need the stroller for the 2 toddlers as they get into everything!

Would you mind sharing the pattern or could I purchase one from you for myself?

kathy said...

What an incredible gift. What new mom wouldn't adore it. A friend gave me her sling when Caitlin was born. She was definitely a sling baby, she loved being pulled close and snuggled in. Of course, mine was not a fashion statement like this one! Beautiful.

Carol said...

it's perfect! and so practical! and what a cutie modeling the sling :)

Amy said...

Oh, how I wanted to be a sling person. I just never found one that worked for me and Bea.

That one is beautiful - and looks to be a wonderful project and gift.

Melissa said...

Jojo, my email address is: melduzan at chaska dot net if you want to email so I can send you my snail mail address to you by email.

hannah said...

I am a sling person, though I must confess to buying most of mine. I have a new native carrier but it is too big, I was given it though. I should try to make a smaller version. Love your fabric, its gorgeous, as is the little baby inside.

Heather said...

Beautiful pictures, I'm sure your friend will love it! It looks really comfortable and it is a great fabric. I made a fleece sling when I had James and used it all the time. Your looks much better than mine did though!

Mirre said...

What a wonderful wonderful gift!!
I'm sure every new mother would love to receive one of your slings!!

Paula said...

I saw a few people ask for the pattern. Was there one online or to purchase? Thanks.

Adrianne said...

Amazing sling, I was also wondering if I could get a copy of the pattern somehow...

T- said...

I love these slings! Can you please send me the pattern/tutorial as well? I am so excited about the baby shoes too. My email is tdwoodson@hotmail.com

Can you please send me the pattern/tutorial? My mail is riera.munsa@yahoo.es

Hi!
I just found your blog. This sling looks great. Have you posted a tutorial yet? Could you?
My friend just had a baby and this looks so much easier than the kind that uses rings.

I'll be checking back on your blog. I invite you to visit me, too.

Laura of Harvest Lane
Happy at Home

I would love to have the directions for making this sling. I have been looking for months and haven't found one that I like. But this one really caught my eye! I'm due in 5 weeks and would love to have one. clglass@gmail.com

Did you ever do a tutorial to this baby sling? Would you be willing to share? You did a great job.

Ashley said...

I might be late to the game here.. but is there a pattern for this sling? The ones I've tried just aren't cutting it for me :(

mcneil.ashley@gmail.com is my address if anyone is feeling generous enough to email a tutorial or pattern :)
