The ASTM standard for ring slings and wraps now in full effect. I can longer sew customer-sent WCRS except for new, unused, unwashed Repreve-blend Tekhni wraps -- I have tested that blend with my in-stock Bios. After working with Meeyoo on their custom-woven Girasol wraps, I can also do brand-new broken twill weave (but not diamond weave) Girasols, but ONLY with a standard gathered shoulder. This is to insure my compliance with the law, and for the safety of continuing my business, I cannot make exceptions. (NB: Any business that is still doing used/customer-sent conversions on wraps with which they have not tested their design after January 30 is breaking the law, whether they are a microbusiness or not. There are no exemptions. Calling yourself a "seamstress" instead of a converter doesn't exempt you; in the eyes of the CPSC, you are still a manufacturer the moment you accept money for sewing a carrier.)
This is a service for having a wrap you've sent to me turned into a ring sling, not for a complete sling.
Please take a moment to read through the wrap conversion information page and the tabs above before ordering this service!
Most of the questions I get from new customers are answered there -- please read before proceeding!
If you indicate below that you have read the page, but have ordered something I cannot provide, I will proceed as best I can (this may mean changing the hems in/out to accommodate pattern orientation) and you agree that I will not be held responsible if it's not what you wanted. I explain everything about this process in the WCRS information page. If anything is not clear to you, please email me before ordering.
Explanations of options are also provided in the [i] icons next to each option header.

If you are buying a piece of someone else's wrap, I have a form you can fill out that can be sent to the seller, to ensure that everything goes smoothly. Please read more about it on the WCRS info page under "I'm buying a piece of someone else's wrap. What do I need to know?"
Again, please take a moment to look through the wrap conversion information page before emailing me with questions, or selecting the options for your conversion below. I have spent hours on that page trying to make sure all the questions are answered. Please do not be offended if you email me with a question that's been answered there and I just copy-and-paste the answer.
You will get a status update from the cart when I receive your wrap. To ensure that this and other status update messages do not end up in your email spam folder, please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your whitelist (Yahoo and other email providers will often route these status emails to spam otherwise), or check the spam folder for messages.
If you want your wrap split into two ring slings and both are being sent to you, you can use the "quantity" box below to add two to your cart, if the options are the same on both. In this case, keep in mind that the insurance value you select will be doubled. If the slings together are worth $200 for insurance purposes, select the $50-100 value and it will double to $200. If you want different things done to each sling, add one with its options to your cart, then click "back" a couple of times and add the second sling with its options to your cart. In this case, select insurance value only once, for the full value of the package. If they are being sent to two separate addresses, however, please place two *orders*, because shipping is calculated on a per-order basis, and if you add two slings to your cart and request that the second be sent to another address, I need to invoice for the additional shipping and the process creates a lot of extra work for me.
Scraps: I always return customers' scrap pieces. The selector below that mentions the greater than a half-meter piece returned is so that shipping is calculated correctly, since a long piece of scrap will make the package more than a pound. I will return scraps regardless of what's selected, but will invoice for actual shipping if you don't select that one and shipping paid isn't enough.
I can convert ONLY new-with-tags, unwashed, Tekhni Repreve blend wraps at the moment, because so far, that's the only one I've tested with. Orders for any other manufacturer, blend, or for used wraps will be refunded, and pieces sent will be returned unsewn.
Secure but easy to access, a zipless pocket is big enough for the essentials.
Using your sling tail as a cover? A snap-on pouch/wristlet allows you to carry small items without adding bulk to the tail.
