This week's message:

I've reached my can-be-sewn-in-a-reasonable-amount-of-time quota, so that's it for this order cycle. I have done something to my shoulder such that moving it is quite painful right now. Because of this issue, I am unlikely to be able to keep up my normal sewing pace, and turnaround time is probably going to be between 5-10 days this time instead of 2-6 days. I apologize for the inconvenience. It also means I'm not sure when I'll be opening next, so please follow my Facebook page as below for updates.

I always post regular updates about the precise time I will reopen the store on my Facebook page. If you "like" my page on Facebook you can get them easily, and if you select "get notifications", Facebook will tell you when I post, which is the best way to get reminders. Otherwise, you can always refresh the home page here and check the Facebook feed in the lower right to see what I've posted.

While the store is closed, the "add to cart" button has been removed to keep new orders from being placed.

Batik tail accents

Batiks are a colorful, earthy way to brighten up a sling and give it a little extra visual interest. Rich, saturated colors will really pop on virtually any fabric. [more]

Price: $12.00
Easycare Wrap Conversion Ring Sling

Easycare wraps are thin, but not too thin, with a wonderfully "giving" weave. Suitable for newborns through toddlers, I used my rainbow Easycare until my youngest no longer wanted to be in a sling (around age 3 1/2).

Price: $85.00

Custom sling, sewn for you by sleeping baby productions out of material you send. Click for my recommended fabric sources and please be sure you have read and understood the custom ordering information page before ordering here. This is for off-the-bolt fabric that requires hemming. For a wrap conversion, please select the "Custom wrap-to-sling conversion" as it includes details that I need to sew a WCRS.)

Price: $30.00
French twill

100% cotton, brushed on one side for strokable softness; the other side is smooth and almost like sateen, with a slight sheen. Its light weight makes it ideal for warmer climates, while giving it a drape one doesn't usually find in twills. [more]

Price: $40.00
Pocket: Zipless
In Stock: 539

Pockets don't need zippers to be secure -- the built-in flap at the top of this pocket (made from the same fabric as your sling) keeps your valuable safe and easily-accessible without a zipper. [more]

Price: $8.00
Snap-on Sling Pouch
In Stock: 910

This zippered pouch, about 9" wide by 7" deep, snaps on to the rings of your sling with a 10" long strap. It adds the convenience of a pocket without adding weight to the sling's tail, or interfering with using the tail as a coverup. (Fabric shown is an example; actual pouch will be made with the same fabric as your sling.) [more]

Price: $14.00
Stretch cotton twill

97% Cotton, 3% Spandex. The spandex gives it a very slight stretch across the width, which adds a bit of a "hug" without adding any bounce. The result is a supportive, comfortable fabric that's terrific for newborns to toddlers.

Price: $50.00
Custom Wrap Conversion Ring Sling (WCRS)
Previous1 of 4Next

Have a wrap you'd like as a ring sling? Send it to me, and I can make it into a sling with overlapping pleats! [more]

Price: $25.00
100% linen

Linen may just be the best sling fabric there is. Before cotton was widely cultivated, linen was the go-to fabric for just about everything -- daily wear, bedclothes, accessories... if it was sewn, it was made with linen. It's strong, supportive, long-wearing, and is especially terrific for hot climates. [more]

Price: $55.00
 

If you are sending in a long wrap to be made into a sling and want the other portion to be made into a shorty wrap, see the details here. Note: I don't make or hem wraps for other purposes as a general policy :) If you only want a wrap hemmed, I would suggest calling your local dry-cleaners, as they nearly always employ a tailor for alterations, and hemming a wrap will be quick work for them.

Price: $12.00
