Step 1: Supplies, Choosing and treating the fabric
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.
Step 2: Determine the size of the sling
(HIP TO SHOULDER MEASUREMENT x2) + 3" = SLING LENGTH
Then cut your fabric so that it is 22" wide by the sling length. For example my sling is 22"x57"
Step 6: Cutting the curve
Then cut from the bottom corner (full length) to the top corner mark
Now open it up along the 22" axis to show the curve you just made, and pin up the curve.
