    I love the sling. I really like the material and I would have never noticed that you made a “mistake” it looks really cute like that. Our babies are coming really soon. Yeah!!!

    Binny needs a blog… Anyway enough about that! I LOVE your projects they make mefeel like I might actually try somethng new. I haven’t yet but I have them bookmarked for that special day I need to make something other that a quilt. Are these just for infants? Or for older babies that you carry around on your hip?

    So cute! I love the fabric. And I love the contrasting stripe :) It looks very hip.

    I LOVE this sling! The contrasting fabric strip is my favorite part, so here’s to making more “mistakes” (and being so honest about them!)

    I like the fabric combination, even if it was the result of a mistake! I just finished a similar sling for my newborn, and it’s a life saver!

    Cute cute sling. Makes me want to make some more even tho’ my youngest is already two and I’m DONE with that phase.

    And I couldn’t agree more with “mistakes” that turn out wonderful. That, along with “My scrap is this big so that’s how big I’ll make the _____”, defines most of my sewing projects! : )

    Love the sling. Sometimes I have to say I actually like making “mistakes” thing just happen to turn out better after them. You’re getting really close to that new little one!

    Maybe a dumb question, but this one doesn’t use any rings or anything right? I have read the original pouch baby sling directions and still can’t tell…Love the fabric combination!! I think it looks gorgeous!! I am expecting June 14th!! Yay!!

    Nope, this pouch sling doesn’t use any rings, some people like rings so it can be adjusted, but some people like the pouch because then you don’t have to worry about being able to adjust it (I am one of those people :)).

    Thanks for the link! I love the “mistake” by the way… It looks on purpose.
