Make Your Own Baby Sling
Many types of baby slings are easy to make. You’ll
save money as well as have the satisfaction of doing it yourself and
getting exactly what you want. It’s also an inexpensive way to test
out different types of slings to see which is best for you, or to
have different ones on hand for different
situations. Some slings can be made without sewing a stitch, others
with minimal sewing, and still others with pouches and pockets and
Wrap slings are the easiest to make, as they are a
flat panel of fabric.
Wrap slings can either be tied across the body to secure (there are
even some methods of wrapping and tucking the sling that no knots
are needed) or secured by looping one end of the fabric through a
ring. Depending on the fabric chosen, you’ll need to hem the edges
and secure the ring. The easiest to make would be a simple wrap made
from a fabric that does not need hemming. Just cut and go!
