site, Hot Slings. I don't quite know if it turned out that well, but mind you I don't have a professional taking my pictures.

I had to get two yards of material and cut it lengthwise it gave me enough material to make two slings. I made one for hubby since he is longer than me, especially with his broad shoulders. (Since I made two I actually saved $75) Now Hubby doesn't have to carry my son on his shoulders when we go on hikes. I'm not quite sure which way is more comfortable for him though.
