Hey ladies, I have fabric, just ordered rings and thought I had a pattern idea but have decided that I would like to find a better pattern. Does anyone make their own hanging sling scales? Would you share your pattern with us?

If you find a pattern you had better make me one.   2whistle.gif  

 

J/k!  I'd be interested in a pattern too.  I did the knitted pattern and it's too stretchy.  It's awfully pretty hanging in my office though!!!

This is a good pattern. It makes for a nice secure 'pouch' for the baby while using the scale.

 

I recommend buying sling rings for the rings. They are made for babywearing slings and are tested for a huge amount of weight. 

 

You can wash the sling with the rings on - I put a sock and an elastic over the rings if it goes in the machine so they don't bang.

Why not you search on amazon because you can easily get a sling scale there. Because there is range of best floor scales and hanging scales with slings and really affordable price range.

I have been making a ring sling for clients for nearly a decade... I worked a pattern from Sleeping Baby.net links... I just use one of those and keep it in my birth kit.
