Wrap it up!

My baby girl was cranky for few evenings and I realized I want scarf sling to hold my baby close and have my hands free to do other stuff (I do already have ring sling but it is not appropriate for infants).
As I knew I will use it rarely and just till she learns to sit on her own (I like my ring sling and I think it's easier to use than a scarf sling) and my baby girl turned 2 months old yesterday (OMG! time flies when one's having fun) so I can't afford to wait when I will get to the store (we cant't buy it in our home town and we are not planning a trip to Riga any time soon) or while I get one delivered by buying on internet ... besides they usually are quite expensive ...
So I made it myself! From a leftover fabric I had in my home .. you'll soon find out why I had those fabric pieces ;)

It is made from two pieces of fabric (68x240cm) overlapping in the baby part. so now it measures 68x440cm it could have been 20 cm longer... that would make it easier to tie it up.. but nevertheless I like it very much. And my baby girl loves it too :) she falls asleep almost instantly when i thug her in.

I have started to daydream of a sling from two different fabric pieces so that the colors can play ... I will make one to show you what I mean if I get to the fabric store before my baby girl learns to sit on her own.

Happy crafting! ;)
