See how happy Nanners the Monkey is? He really thinks that Butterball is going to like this cover.
My next project was a sling carrier. I wanted one of these and had priced them at the store- they run $30-$60 and recently some were recalled. But I still wanted one. I have another friend (Michelle) who had one that she had made, she told me that she too had found instructions on the Internet, so I did a search and sure enough, pretty detailed instructions. I used a free pattern from Handmade Adelaide Baby. I was a little worried about the French Felled Seam, but I didn't need to be. I think it turned out great.
(This is what I look like after 3 hours of SEWING FUN) hahaha, but look how good the sling works, it can cradle infants on up topping out at children around 35 or 40 pounds. I let J inaugurate the sling, and truthfully it really wasn't bad.
So there you go, a glimpse into my creative side, i.e. I can be creative as long as someone else wrote up some good instructions. :) Now lets see if I can make sweet little Butterball a blanket before he arrives. Oh, and I almost forgot- all the fabric for both projects- $15!
