A Co-Worker of mine recently broke her arm.

Slings have never been very fassionable.

When I broke my arm I sewed many different colored slings and became the center of attention.

My sewing machine is broken and I wanted to make her a sling she could wear and keep her warm, and still be able to wear it at work.

I casted 35 stitchs
made 10 rows on the bottom.
made 11 rows for back and both sides

I made the bottom first, then the back.
While making the sides I connected it to the back in a single stitch. then up another stitch to start the next line.

When finished making all 3 peices I Made a finnished edge all the way around the front and top to cover any bad stitches.

Across the back I added 10, then 9 then 8 then 7 then 6 then 5 made a whole for the sholder band to go through. then made it stronger by going back and forth over the stitchs.

Finished the connections to the bottom and sides by weaving a single strand through the edges to make them stand out.

Just add a sturdy strap with velcro and you have a warm styling sling.
