I've decided to sling my baby (due Dec. 14th!)...but I'm a thrify woman, as I know a lot of you mothering.com women are.<br><br>
So, I was wondering...any of you who have made your sling(s), what did you find to be the best pattern out there?<br><br>
The versatility of a ringed w/ tail, or a knotted sling appeals to me, but feel free to persuade me otherwise. Thank you for all your help! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Thank you very much for all the webpages. I think I like the way the mayawrap looks. And the cheapest rings, by far, were the ones on elizabetlee.com. Looks like I might be headed in the right direction! Thanks!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Let me start by saying I am not a seamstress. I can barely sew a button, but I was able to make Rev. Jan's ring sling in about an hour and a half. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I used 3" rings from the craft store in the macrame dept for 39 cents ea. I had my husband stand on one end and pull to see how strong it was before I put my son in it.<br><br><a href="http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/index.html?Baby/braconvert.html" target="_blank">http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/inde...raconvert.html</a>

The Maya is very easy. The hardest part is accordian folding it! The most time-consuming part is if you decide to hem all three sides! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
If you check <a href="http://www.slingrings.com" target="_blank">www.slingrings.com</a> you'll see that their rings are actually the same $ as the EL ones (for the same size--SlingRings has more sizes). Unless, of course, you prefer metal.... And, IMO, SlingRings has better customer service. And they ship super fast! Anyway, JMTCW....happy slinging! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
