Just had to share: When my sister (hoppytoad) was visiting us out here in Seattle the beginning of April....she made me a beautiful sling to carry my sweet baby girl in. I had made one myself, following the Maya wrap instructions; but as my little girl got bigger, the sling started to dig into her thighs in hip carry (no padding, fabric too thin (my bad). NOW I have a lightweight dark denim sling with beautiful "batik'd" butterflies on it, with very light padding. The tail is fringed and I'm gonna embellish it a little more around the hem area, but I am sooo pleased with it. I have gotten countless comments around the area and am pushing her to get me some business cards I can just hand to people who ask "WHERE'D you get that gorgeous sling???"http://www.shutterfly.com/osi.jsp?i=...99e4cd¬ag=1
here's a pic, its number 8 out of 21 in my album. The pic doesn't really do it justice, honest.
And the best part.....my sweetie sister stayed up til 5:30 AM to make it, as we were going to the Tulip Festival in the Skagit Valley the next day and I needed something to carry my babe in (had taken apart my old sling to use the rings). We went to bed at 5:30 and got up at 7:00 AM...lol.
Thanks Karen!!!!! You are very un-toad-like
