Rings for slings in Malaysia

Spread the ring sling love!

I had a great experience slinging my darling boy. Public nursing was a breeze with my trusted sling. And it sure helped to comfort him when he was upset. Am still slinging…this time, with number 2.

After making my first ring sling, friends wanted some for themselves. So I ordered extra of these colourful rings from Slingrings.com so that I can share it with you. These aluminium rings are made especially for baby wearing. I understand the dilemma of wanting only 1 or 2 pairs but not wanting to pay shipping from the States and waiting for 2 weeks.

So get a pair of rings and sew your own sling. Nothing beats handmade 🙂

Boys backpack Disney Cars

Phew. I finally completed my son’s backpack yesterday, bringing it to a total of about 7 hours over 2 days of planning, cutting and sewing.

After this attempt, I’m sure I can make another backpack in a shorter time. That’s the thing with prototypes. Many hours are needed to figure out how to make something a bit more complicated than a zipper pouch. I love watching my son carry this, especially next to the mass store-bought-China-made McQueen bags. Ah, he would have loved that too, though. Give him anything McQueen and you’ll be his best bud…for now.

Faux leather red baby shoes

Back in November last year, I wanted to make something for my niece who was turning one. Why not cute little Mary Janes? Having made 2 pairs of fabric shoes, I decided to try out faux leather. Turned out pretty well, to me. I still need to figure out how to minimise bulk to have a more professional look on the inside.

With great excitement, I rushed off to try them on the little one’s feet. Alas, they were a tad too small. 😦 Will make bigger ones next time.
