A friend asked me to sew a ring sling to carry her newborn, so I searched on internet to find out the size and materials I needed for this kind of sling: And here it is, fast and easy to sew and (I hope) useful for the new mum!
A ring sling requires a long fabric stripe about 70 cm height, so if you cut in half a common fabric that is 140 or 150 cm height you have material enough for two slings. So I realized one for my friend and another one with the “leftover” fabric for my sister!
After several attempts I decided that the most comfortable, in my opinion, was the one with pleats sewn near the point where the rings are inserted, because leaving the fabric free a part tended to slip down the shoulder limiting the movements.
In my blog you can find the link to the tutorial I followed for the pleats.
