Homemade Sling

Staying at home all day seems like an easy task to some people. But, when you throw in the care of two little can become a little daunting. There are times when it seems as if Hope and Savannah take turns on who is going to fuss for the time being. One moment, Hope will be crying and the second she calms down, Savannah starts up. Then there are those times when it's just one that can't seem to get comfortable and wants to be held.

I feel bad sometimes because there are chores that need to be done that have been long overdue. Mike's out of work shirts, the bills need to be paid, the floor is covered in muddy paw get where I'm going with this right?

Well, I've been looking at those wraps that are supposed to carry your baby up close to you, but they are just so expensive. So...I went on You Tube and searched how to utilize a twin size bedsheet. Yes, you read it right, a sheet.

It works really well and I can rearrange the fabric to support them where it's needed. It never fails, they always end up falling asleep and I'm getting chores done. Totally works for me.

Here is a link that shows you how to tie the sheet. Mine isn't very flattering, but it's been a long time since we've had a twin size bed....dorm days was a while ago.


  1. Smart lady!

    I spent $25 dollars for mine, which is still a good deal 'cuz it's really nice, but free is soooo much better.

    Good job!

  2. Great job girl!! I just made myself a moby wrap last week with fabric on clearance! I wear Lily all the time it definitely makes for a happy mommy and happy baby!!

  3. Love it! I made a sling using two king size pillow cases. Free is so awesome!

  4. My mom says that its the hardest when you have little kids and you don't have any older ones to help out with them.

    Loving the sling.



I love hearing from friends. Tell me what you think..God bless!

But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more Psalm 71:14
