Hello! I am going to attempt making a sling for our baby due in January. I thought that if anyone would know the best websites with patterns etc. it would be you ladies! I haven't sewed before - but I just got a sewing machine given to me and have a few projects I want to try. I thought that a sling would probably be a fairly simple place to start. Needless to say, I would love some really simple (fool proof) instructions, preferably with pictures.

I have a moby wrap, but was thinking of a ring sling for this one. Is a ring sling easier than a fitted one?

So far I have found:

Any other recommendations?

Jan has some great instructions on her SleepingBaby site. There is also a DIY forum on, where you can post questions, and look at pics.

Ring slings are super easy to make, just be sure to buy good rings, from slingrings.

Mama to twins, my little guy, and
