      Thank you, Sky! That makes me happy that you think it’s good. And thank you! He’s getting so big I’m going to need a wagon to pull him around in, instead of a sling soon. 😉 haha

      Thanks Benny! I don’t know what weight it was…It was just the 100% linen from JoAnn’s. As long as it’s 100% linen, I don’t think it matters. 🙂

    hey tori

    im just curious if i could instead of using one just one piece of 2.25 long and 25-30 wide could i use both for one sling?

      Hi Alexis! Yes, you sure could. There are ring slings that are 2 layered so that it’s more sturdy. For that, I would probably still cut the fabric in half and then sew around the edges leaving about a 5 inch hole to pull the fabric through. Once you’ve pulled the fabric through, you can lay it out flat, iron, and sew around the edges again before adding the rings. I wouldn’t make the fabric wider than 30 inches though because the fabric bunches too much and it would make carrying a child a lot more difficult with the extra fabric. I hope that helps!

      Hi Kasey! It should support a baby up to 35 lbs. After that, your baby will probably be more interested in walking, or you may have to find a more sturdy carrier.
