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.
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.
