New Ride

Last week, we put to rest
The sweet fabric which cradled our babes next to us.
Whilst walking Ophelia around the block she put her foot through a bit of wear in the fabric and pushed, next thing I knew out popped a foot.
Although sad to see it go, I was excited to make a new one. & with joy rummaged through the fabric stash for something strong, breathable & soft. Luckily I found just the right thing! Scored at a house sale two years back, this lovely lite blue linen with leaf decoration.
It took me all of 20 minutes to make, after studying the old slings mechanics & stitchery.
Viola, new sling. I even think little miss likes it. She has been enjoying the hip carry lately.

As for the old sling maybe the salvageable pieces will go into a little of this or that. We shall see.
