Step 1: Download this free baby sling pattern.

Follow the general shape of the pattern to create a piece 58″ inch (148 cm) long and 21″ inch (53 1/2 cm) wide.

Step 2: Fold along the dotted line then fold in half.

Step 3: Sew along the curved edge and use a double stitch for strength as this section will take the main weight of the baby.

Step 4: So that the sling remains folded sew a 6″or 15 cm line. This section usually sits on your shoulder.

Step 5: Make a hem around one bottom.

Optional: Want a longer sling? Simply measure from your shoulder to your hip and double it to get the original length measurement.
