- Take 1.8 metres of soft rayon fabric in a pretty colour.
- Fold in half and make a french seam down the shorter sides.
- Sew a piece of bias binding closed and tie tightly around the fabric.
- Put over you shoulder, pop the baby in and enjoy a happy baby so close to her mummy!
[Edit: A yard and a metre are much the same, so just under 2 yards would be fine. I actually used the spare bit of fabric and made a scarf for my sister like this. The fabric was 150cm which is about 60 inches wide. Total cost for one baby sling and one scarf? $5 Making it yourself? Priceless!!]
