Hello! The next workshop at Calon Yarns is this Saturday!
Make a Beautiful Baby Ring Sling
A Ring Sling is a piece of fabric which threads through the rings to form a loop. You simply adjust the size of the loop according to the size of the baby and the carrier to get excellent support and comfort for you both. ‘Baby wearing’ is becoming an ever more popular way of carrying your little bundle of joy as it is both versatile and easy to use.
The Ring Sling can be used from birth up to around 3 years of age and is wonderful as it keeps baby close to the body and can also be used to discreetly breastfeed.
The sling is relatively easy to make and requires surprisingly little fabric. There is no pattern to follow and you can practise your pleating and gathering skills (or learn them for the first time!) and if you feel adventurous, you could also add a pocket with a zip, button or velcro fastening!
So if you have a baby on the way or maybe have a friend who would appreciate a beautiful homeade gift for baby, then why not join us for this wonderful workshop.
Cost £50 (includes the ring fastening, a light lunch and refreshments, but not the fabric needed for the sling)
This workshop is suitable for those who have at least a basic knowledge of using a machine. You will need to bring your machine along with you.
