Baby Sling

I came late to the whole baby-wearing phenomenon. I didn't consider a sling of any type until I was pregnant with Monkey. I started pricing them and...gasp! You want how much? For that? That's like two yards of fabric and some stitches! Now, I'm not a great sewer, but a baby sling for $40+? Come on, people. So after tooling around online, I found this great tutorial. The most difficult thing was figuring out the french seam. Why are things described as "french"-something always more complicated? Anyway, I got a sturdy, yet pretty denim for $2/yd. You can make two out of two yards. Mine doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but it sure came in handy trying to carry an infant and chase a 2 year old.
