Step 1: Supplies, Choosing and treating the fabric
1.5-2 yd. fabric (this depends on what size you're sling will be, which depends on what size you are)
The first step is getting the right fabric, and there are a few things to keep in mind:
1. Don't get anything too stretchy, (if you do, the baby will sag down, and won't be safe and secure in the sling)
2. Great something that's washable!
3. Get a strong pattern that will hide stains well, (let's face it, kids are messy!)
Once you've picked out your fabric, be sure to wash it in mild detergent at least once.
