Your little model is adorable. My DD loved her sling and used it for a long time. They are so handy and take the strain off your back -- and babies do get heavy. Nice job and fabric.

Thanks for the vote on the fabric guys. Fabric for boys is surprisingly hard to find, especially since I did not want to get licensed stuff, so I settled for a bright print/ design, that DH hated on sight. Having made it up though, he thinks now, it is rather nice. So here's hoping my friend will like it for her little baby boy!

That's very cute Imaan! (and the sling too) Is the sling reversible?

Great work Imaan :) Please let us know how it feels after you have tested it out with bub? I might consider making one for my new grandbaby. Bub is gorgeous too :) Another question, do you think a fabric like an Amy Butler print would be suitable?

Great work. I've reached the age where all my friends are popping out babies so this would be a great gift alternative to the standard changing mat I make now (or for baby no.2!).

Hi Mel, thanks for the encouragement. It is fully lined, so I suppose it is reversible, in that no stitching is visible on either side, except where they pattern instructions have you leave 30 cm open to turn the sling inside out at the end, and then topstitch, which I took a photo of above. Vonne, I will be wearing it tonight at a gathering, so will let you know how it goes. It has been great so far, so I am hopeful it will be fine...I think if it works, it IS a much better idea than RTW baby clothes etc :-) I just wish I had come across it when I had baby no 1, not my last baby, no 3!!! I don't really know what Amy Butler fabric feels like, since i have never purchased it, but I was thinking bright fabrics, as pictured on the KS pattern piece, as well as quilt-type prints, for people who might want something a bit more discreet. I guess Amy Butler probably does a bit more of that?

I like the fabrics Imaan, I also make these as baby shower gifts as they are quick and easy. I like to use patterned but more neutral colours (greys, beige) as they tend to be received a bit better by the recipient.
