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. 

wombjuice and Thyme Mama like this.

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 links... I just use one of those and keep it in my birth kit.
