If you’ve stopped into the shop lately you’ll see I’m sporting a new accessory! Camille is quite comfortable riding along all day in her sling or carrier while I sew and teach. It really frees up my hands so that I can still get some work done while she sleeps and enjoys some snuggles! There are lots of different ways to “wear” a baby – yes, baby wearing is a thing. I’ve been using my Moby Wrap, which I totally love. However, it does tend to get pretty hot with that huge piece of thick fabric wrapped around your body several times!
Many of my friends swear by the good ‘ole ring sling so I decided to give it a try. First step… Make one! Don’t you find that you hate to buy anything that you can make? And why not make it when you have such fun fabrics right at your fingertips! Seriously, the hardest part about making this sling was choosing the fabric and rings. So I made my first one and I love it! After teaching a small group how to make the ring sling, I discovered some ways that I would change the process and add some pockets or make the sling reversible.
I’ve added this class to the calendar for October 29th from 1-3pm. The class is $55 and includes your supplies (2 1/2 yards of your favorite fabric and coordinating aluminum rings). In one afternoon you can complete a great gift or valuable tool to keep for yourself and your little one! Once you make one you won’t be able to stop!
