baby slingin...


so... i made a baby sling... with some encouragement and lots and lots of help from matt... i wanted a baby carrier really bad and was interested in a mei tai or a pouch sling... i like the pouch slings because they
are really easy to take on and off and you can nurse in them, plus the baby is so snuggly :) i couldn't justify spending all the money on one when i could make it myself.... so i started designing one and it was way harder than what i thought it would be and i was very discourged... but matt being the wonderful man that he is spent two full evenings helping me design a pattern and i took it from there... this was really a practice sling with fabric i had lying around... i'm going to make a lot of changes on the next one and when i get it perfect i will get some fabric i really like and make a final piece :) but for now i'm just enjoying having one... eislee is enjoying it too... she's sleeping in it as i type haha... also, i'm making a matching one for layla's baby :) i will post pics of that when it's finished... she calls it a baby patch... i love that... i think i'll call it a baby patch too, that's a good name.

What a wonderful sling! Great Job Jen & Matt!!!! I love the material and how beautiful Eislee looks in it....I found a good Screen saver for awhile :)

I'm not very good at this so one of you will have to show me how to do it with a name instead of this way :)
