    About

    Slings that aren't boring

    Hello!

    I'm a Catholic work-at-home mama. Happily married to a loving man. Living in California, raised in small-town Idaho.

    My interest in sewing began shortly before the birth of my son.

    I always admired moms bustling through the grocery store with their child happily bouncing on their hip instead of in the cart. I loved the beautiful Mei Tai style carriers adorned with beads and bright colors made by the fiercely dedicated Hmong women. I gawked at the amazing wraps used in wrapyouinlove's youtube tutorials.

    However, the carriers that I loved all seemed somehow too complicated for me. I just have a hard time imagining navigating 5 yards of fabric around me and a wiggly little one. Enter: the ring sling. Only one problem, I couldn't find anything that made me get those same "consumer butterflies." I really liked the fancy carriers with all the bells and whistles. They seemed so much more personal and customized!

    I did a ton of research to see what fabrics are safest, what type of thread to use, and which rings are made specifically for baby-wearing and so on..then I made one. And another. And another. Now I'm obsessed with pairing fun fabrics, and creating new designs.

    I make ring slings for moms who aren't afraid to play with fabrics, textures, and colors in their wardrobes. I think of a ring sling as an opportunity to spice up your look!

    Thanks for visiting, happy baby-wearing!

    Frequently asked questions
    Sizing details

    Each sling varies in length, sizes are posted in each listing description.

    For reference, I'm 5'7" and a size 10/12. Depending on your body type, the placement of the applique will vary.

    If you need a longer or shorter tail, don't hesitate to contact me! It's very easy for me to alter a current sling or create a custom order.

    Care instructions

    Every sling comes to your door pre-washed & ready to wear.

    It's pre-softened linen as well, so just wearing it often will soften it up even more.

    I recommend spot cleaning whenever possible, and only washing when there's a diaper situation or stain hazard. This elongates the life of your sling.

    That said, when you do need to wash your sling, keep in mind linen has a tendency to wrinkle. So be sure to switch from the washer (cold with a low spin cycle) and remove from dryer right away. That'll save you time ironing.

    If/when you iron it, use medium heat and steam or a spray bottle.

    How do I use a ring sling? Any tips or safety info I should know?

    This video helped me a lot with threading and tightening :

    The most important things are:

    -Your baby is high enough that you can kiss his forehead easily.

    -Baby is in upright position, chin off his chest.

    -There's a deep "seat." Meaning there's at least 3 inches of fabric between you and baby spreading from knee to knee.

    -Baby's legs are in "m" position, meaning knees are higher than bum and legs are spread apart. Think of sitting on a bench vs a hammock.

    -Spread fabric over your shoulder instead of it bunching at your neck. It distributes weight more evenly and saves you from back pain.

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    Every sling comes gift wrapped already, just let me know if you'd like a note added to the package.
