I know the basics of making a pouch sling, but I really love the Metrosupial Slings, which she is not selling anymore.  There seems to be a different in the Metrosupial slings with rails and basic sling patterns and the baby brain is not letting me wrap my head around the construction.  It looks like it's an easy step, but I just can NOT figure it out.  Any help would be appreciated!

Here's a link to Metrosupials Flickr set of slings:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/metrosupialdesigns/sets/72157603665885189/?page=2

From looking through the photos, it looks like her slings are two layers sewn together.  I think there is a bottom layer (much like a basic sling) and a band that fits nicely under baby's bottom and around mom for extra support.  If you look at the photo of the brown sling and "Little Ben", you can see a row of stitching where the two pieces are attached. 

Let me know if that description was really confusing or if I'm way off, but that's what it looks like to me.

BTW, I think I'm going to try to make one myself Smiley.  Let me know how yours turns out!
