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.
When ordering your fabric, half a yard is plenty. (I will return any that remains after sewing your sling.) In general, the basic sling fabrics (twill, denim, and linen) work best with a cotton accent. If you are buying it online, you can have it sent directly to me. My mailing address will be listed in your email confirmation.
Remember, you also need to pick out a base fabric! The materials alone in a regular sling cost more than $8, not to mention my sewing time. This $8 cost is for the 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.
Please email me before sending it or having it sent, so that I can verify it will work with the fabric you've chosen. My address is:
