Project Complete!

So, the other day I had mentioned that I was starting a project...
If you missed that little announcement you can see the fabric in THIS post.

Well, once I actually had a chance to start getting things ready
to work on it... I realized that I definitely had NOT gotten
the right amount of fabric.


However, I was able to find some other OK fabric in my stash...
and last weekend, Cory watched Eloise for quite a bit
so that I could focus.

Check it out!


Now I can go to a store (that doesn't have shopping carts!)
or wherever.... and haul Eloise around semi-hands free!
(Technically I can let go of her--if I need to browse racks or
something... but I feel better with at least one arm under her!)

We had gotten me one of those slings... and I REALLY
wanted to use it... but I don't think I got the right size
because I never felt like El was in it the right way.

I didn't want to be one of those mom's who suffocates
their baby in a sling!

I also was WAY too cheap to spend $80 on
one of those fancy carriers... and honestly,
I really didn't want just a cheapo one
from Walmart.

So I made my own
(yes, with a pattern--no free handing something like this!)

It was pretty simple to make and I am
pretty darn pleased with it!


Perhaps I will make more of these for
some of my preggy friends...
Hmmmm..... :)

I would love to hear if any of you had success with a sling!
I just could not figure it out!

Hope you had a great weekend!!


  1. I made a mai tae (I think that's how you spell it . . . I can't remember lol) for my Godson & his mom. They love it! It was a really easy project too, and so much cheaper than the $80 to buy one! Yours is really cute! :)

  2. It looks great!!! You did a fantastic job! :)


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you have to say!
