Hi ladies - have any of you ever made your own ring slings? If so, what company do you order your rings from? I am making my first one and want to get a good set of rings.

Thanks!

I have made several and I sell them. I get all my rings from slingrings.com. They have lots of colors and are cheap.

I had good luck getting welded brass O rings from a store that carried sailing supplies. Sounds weird but they are tested to a heavy weight though in hindsight nylon rings would be better.

Thanks for the suggestion ladies! I can't wait to see the finished products - in truth my grandmother is doing the sewing this time around, but maybe when the baby is here we'll do a different style together
