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) Sewing Machine Thread Scissors Pins Iron
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.
