sling


I made this sling for Joseph following the instructions in my new favorite crafting book.  Damn easy.  This amused Joseph for minutes, I tell you. 

You will notice that two babies are being carried in this sling, as well as a bulldozer which you can't see.  I take this to mean that I will have no trouble jamming two newborns into my own pouch sling.  At some point I'm going to have to graduate to a more versatile baby carrier (probably a wrap) in order to wear them both at the same time, but while they are still slingable, they will be slung.  I have no idea how to parent an infant without just wearing it all day and I hope I don't ever have to figure this out.  Back pain is a fair price to pay for being able to empty the dishwasher without being screamed at by two (two!) babies.

Yay! I made one of these for myself and I will tell you that the new little one LOVES it. I mean... LOVES IT. They are SOOOO handy. Especially when you have older kids that need attention too. It has been a huge help to have one or two of these nifty slings laying around. I used the tutorial posted on the karma baby website to make mine, but it looks very similar to the one you made.

Cute Sling!

I have a couple of pouch slings I made when Joseph was a baby, using the Karma Baby tutorial actually. Now I should make a few in my husband's size, but perhaps not in the truck fabric.

love it.

joseph is quite attached to the bulldozer isnt he? wasnt he napping with it the other day?

Karen said...

Yes, Joseph loves his trucks, his bulldozer and dump truck in particular. He treats them like little dolls. It's very sweet.

that is really cute about joseph and the trucks.

(i hope my first comment didnt sound like i was being critical. it wasnt meant that way and when i just reread it i thought it sounded kinda snide.)
