I made a ringsling for my friend, she has a new baby.
We don't have action shots yet because the baby came a little bit early and it's sooooo small (about 44cm), you can't see him at all when he's lying in the sling  Grin

I love the red fabric.

My only concern is that those look like plastic craft rings.  If they are then I advise you to invest in some sling rings, as plastic craft rings aren't strong enough to retain the weight and may break.

If you need a set of metal rings I have a pair I'd be happy to send you. the sling is to pretty to not get use due to unsafe materials. I have some of the authentic ring slings that I bought ages ago.
Did you have any trouble making it and what pattern or tutorial did you use to make the sling? It looks great from what I can see so far!

Thet's very nice, but I live in Germany. Finally I found a place where I can get those rings here.
The tutorial for my ringsling is on the german Dydimos site.

But I think there are also some tuts here on crafster.
Making a sling is really easy, I just bought new fabric to make some more Smiley
