If you google the words "Baby Sling," you'll come up with an endless number of websites selling all different types of slings. Today's slings have trendy and exotic names. They come in all kinds of colors and styles. Celebrities wear their babies in them like a new favorite accessory. But...they can also cost a fortune.

So, our thrifty friend Abbie, decided to make her own. That got us doing a little research of our own...

One of the most comprehensive sites we found was The Baby Wearer.com . Their site will lead you to instructions for just about any kind of sling you want to make.

When we read the words, "No Sew" we headed over to Sleeping Baby.net. All you'll need is a gorgeous piece of fabric and a ring to go with it. Check out Sling Rings.com for a nice selection of rings.

If you favor the Maya Wrap, their website has the complete instructions to duplicate it with your own fabric.

This should get you started. Any other experienced DIY Sling Makers out there- give us your tips.
