It seems like years since I have posted any sewing here on the blog! Being at my sewing machine again has been heavenly! My first project came out of necessity. My sister Rae has been sporting this super cool sling from Mamma's Milk and I really wanted one too, the only problem was that I wanted a cute one. After some searching I found that they sell their pattern! YAY!!!!
I whipped one up within half an hour of finding the pattern -so much better than waiting on shipping and having to pay full price! I used my Hunky Dory fabric that I have been saving for one side, and for the other I used more of that pea green sheet that I got from my Granny. I LOVE IT! And Claire LOVES IT! It's reversible, it fits perfectly (they have an automated fitting chart that you can go by), and I felt good knowing that it was their tried and true pattern.
Before Rae and I went to the camp on Monday morning I made her a pretty sling too. And then that night, after using mine all day long with a happy baby, I made two more for baby gifts! They are so easy and the babies love being in them so much that it just seemed like the perfect baby gift. Another thing that really makes me happy is that I can put it on easily by myself (that wasn't the case with my old baby carrier) and it folds up tiny to fit in my purse or diaper bag.
