Meri, I think I got my ring sling from the same lady ( a grandma on ebay) b/c my fabric looks the same but orange. I have a problem in that she sewed far away from the rings, so in order to get the fan over the shoulder, the rings are way far down. I have never seen another sling so maybe this is how they all are, but also maybe she sewed it weird. Anyone know? The stitching is about 6 inches away from the rings and the fabric is folded at the stitching in a flattened accordion. Is this the way it should be?
