Add a little pizazz to your sling with a tail accent! It will be sewn on as shown at right -- I used to do them all the way to the bottom of the tail (as is shown on the slings in the very old gallery), but feel that leaving a border of the sling fabric below the accent is a nicer look. If you would prefer a different placement, please let me know ahead of time. I can also add an open-top pocket within the accent at no extra charge; there is no closure, and the pocket will be around 8" wide by 10" deep.
You will need to select a main fabric from the shopping menu first, then select an accent fabric from those listed below. If you would like to add a print you've found yourself, use the "sent by customer" option.
Remember, you also need to pick out a base fabric! The materials alone in a regular sling cost more than $12, not to mention my sewing time. This $12 cost is for the accent fabric and extra sewing only, not for a complete sling.
Also keep in mind that this does not add any length to the sling. If you select an accent, the sling will still be sewn to the length you've specified.

About William Morris: Born in 1834, William Morris was a Victorian in the true sense of the word as his life spanned all but a few years of Queen Victoria’s reign. He is particularly well known for his extensive work with textiles and wallpapers and during the whole decade from the middle of the 1870’s. William Morris designed with a linear exactness and this teamed with the broad sweep of his imagination give his work a very recognizable individuality all of its own, he once said that design should always be based in memory and imagination.
