made a sling for the new baby out of scraps of flannel. it was a really easy project (and would have been easier had i used one length of fabric instead of piecing together flannel). I got the directions from here. which is the same sling that miranda made. I did end up taking it in a couple of inches.
I was glad i made it, because i have a hard time putting down the cute baby and getting things done. so now i can do both.
