First of all, if any of my readers live close to Pilot Mound, I will be there this Thursday morning, doing a babywearing presentation. So, if you are interested in seeing my carriers or just want to know more about it, you can ask me where it's at :) I'd love to meet you there!
Last night I got motivated again to pull out my sewing machine. First I finished a ring sling that just needed to be hemmed. Then I fixed one of Rowan's sheets that had a tear in it, and put in some new elastic. And then, I got brave enough to try something new with a sling!
A few weeks ago I attempted to sew a sling with a heavier fabric, and my machine did not handle it very well. I guess that's what I get for buying a cheaper sewing machine :( Anyway, I got so frustrated that I just put it all away. So, last night I decided to try again. I did something a bit differently than I had planned, and I think it turned out pretty good. The only problem with it is I only had medium sized sling rings in the color that I wanted, so it's a bit hard to adjust.
I used a heavier twill type fabric, with a quilting cotton accent on the bottom of the tail. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this fabric!
Also, I thought I'd mention my friend Andrea's review blog again. She has tons of contests and reviews going up all the time. I just entered one for some cute cards from Black Butterfly. Very pretty, yet simple. Go check it out!
