A midwife recently asked me to make her a baby scale sling--the kind you use when to weigh a newborn after the birth. She purchased one online and it was, to put it nicely, a piece of work. The fabric was hideous. The thread didn't match. The stitching was uneven. The hems were unfinished in places. The rings were thin and flimsy. The raw edges weren't matched up at all. She asked if I could make her a new one. Here are the before & after pictures:

I've been busy making slings. Besides the chocolate/blue and silk/batik reversible slings from last week, I've made the following this week and have more on order.
