A new ring sling!

For the past two days I have been spending any free moment I have making a new ring sling. I made one for Joaquin back when he was tiny, but I used it so much it was getting rather old and tattered. I found an awesome new fabric a bit ago that felt like was so me with lots of red, orange & yellow and have been meaning to make it for months. It was even on The List and all the sewing gear has been sitting in a pile in the kitchen just waiting for me.

Finally I got the itch and here it is. It could have been done better, but I was kind of rushed and a bit distracted at times, can't imagine why!?! So there are some sloppy parts here and there, but for the most part I'm pretty happy with it.

When I was wearing it tonight Joaquin asked me if I was a Princess Mommy. I do feel rather Royal in it and Dan agreed with him that I looked like a Princess. Heck, I figure if I'm going to be wearing a baby everywhere I might as well do it as Princess-like as possible!

Well Joaquin was at Gramma & Papa's house for a few hours on Thursday which gave me a nice head start. After that it was all about bed time and nap time!
