My Baby's Sling

I love this baby sling. I have used it so much, and I get compliments on the sling all the time. I put the collage together when I posted these photos on Flickr a few months back before I started my blog. So I thought I would include them here. I had to put up some recent pictures of me using the sling to show how good it is for an older baby, too. Monkey Two is 12 months old now, and I always keep my sling handy. In fact, I even caught my husband using it last night (now that would have made a good picture. Darn). He had the baby more in the front, and they both looked very comfortable. And oh-so-stylish. I made the sling last year, copying a Hotsling. I highly recommend them! Disclaimer: I didn't take these pictures for my blog (in fact, I didn't take most of these), so they are completely natural pictures of my baby and me. And a cut out husband. Sorry for the unprofessionalness of it all.

I don't know if you can tell, but the sling is lined with brown on green Moda polka dots. I love this fabric, and used it on the baby's car seat cover as well (which I still haven't blogged yet). Usually the sling is not lined. I added that bit myself. I also cut it out on the bias since the real Hotslings are made with a thick, stretchy fabric. In these pictures Monkey Two is 2 to 4 months old.

Now that I've proved I would make an awesome hitchhiker, you can see how it works on the twelve month old Monkey. The seam usually goes on my shoulder, but I must have been in a hurry. The padding goes under the kid's legs in this hold.

And one more. Marito is cut out of the picture, but I don't think he'll mind.

So tell me: Don't you just wanna carry one of these cute little guys of your own? Oh, and the baby, too?


  1. I know who will have one of THOSE in September! Should I start looking for fabric now?

  2. Yes, if you have a preference!

  3. You absolutely make the CUTEST THINGS!!
