The Upcycled Sling

This year, I’m trying to make as many gifts as I can. Of course, there’s still a lot that I have to buy, hence my nightmarish trip to Target, which you can read about here. But, I’m still able to make quite a few. Here’s one I’m especially proud of.

The back story is, a couple of months ago, my neighbor brought over a baby sling she wasn’t using anymore and had unsuccessfully tried to sell. We both loved the material and she was hoping I might be able to use it to make something. So, last night it went from this




to this





I know the fabric is reversed since I pulled the top photo from their website. But, you get the idea.


I think she's going to be thrilled and love seeing her daughter in it.
