2 min Doll Sling Tutorial

As a part of what I'm doing for my daughter (the perfect mommy kit!) I made a sling for her to walk her baby around. Because when I'll walk mine around she'll want to walk hers too!

And I came up with a really really easy, cheap and fast idea!

What you need:

A scarf
2 O-ring. ( I couldn't find any so I bought bracelets at the dollar store)
Matching color thread
Sewing Machine

1. Take one end of your scarf, pass the O rings through and fold about 2-3", roughly pin in place.

2. Change your all-purpose foot for your zipper foot, Sew close to the rings.
(or, you can hand sew I guess)
I've zigzag stitched once and straight stitched over it.

3.It should look like that... Now Gather it.

4. Pass the other end of the scarf thought the rings, place on shoulder, grab a baby and play mommy!

(sorry for the non-cuteness of the model... I'm hidding it from Mariann until the weekend!)


  1. What a cool idea! You are so creative!

  2. Sooooo cool! I make this for my girls soon!

  3. awesome idea! i am going to have to make up one or two of these for my girls!

  4. this is lovely thanks for sharing BB

  5. This is wonderful, and so affordable. I love the idea of a little "mommy kit" for my daughter, as she will be a big sister this February. :)
