I really want to try out a new sling, and the ABC's seem like a good option. I make my own adjustable ring slings, so I'm having a hard time with the prices on the ABCs. Does anyone have a link for directions on making an ABC? Is it complicated? They don't look that difficult to make, any advice for me?

I used these instructions, and it was pretty easy. the hardest thing was putting the top part on, but it is just like doing a shirt coller. I also put a layer of heavy weight interfacing in the top part for stability.

Hi! You can totally do it! One thing I would advise is to make the straps out of canvas or heavy twill. And make them at least 4 inches wide. Have fun and I want to see pics!!!
