I made a baby sling. I have another in the works. It was VERY easy to make. I ordered special rings designed for slings. They come in lots of colors (slingrings.com) and sizes. I used the large size. There is a brown stripe in the middle of the inside of the sling. I used ribbon to cover some ugly stitchery. I think my 1978 Kenmore sewing machine couldnt handle all the double layer pleats. However I will try something different next time because hand sewing that ribbon SUCKED. But its done and it looks nice now.
Oh... and I used the size and pleat instructions from

Here are a few pics...

Looks great! I like the turquoise/brown color combo. The ribbon cover is an excellent save! (I have about four yards of that ribbon, too!)

that's really pretty!  i just may have to try that as mine is pretty boring, but both little ones love it now!

Will swap for baby food jars (or other small jars with lids)
