|I made Evangeline a sling for her birthday!|
Then I remembered the McCalls pattern I had purchased last year that included a Mei Tai and a sling pouch. Ta da! The sling looks very similar to a New Native Sling Pouch. The happy hubby was watching the kiddos so this was the perfect time to get started on a new project just in time for Evangeline's first birthday! I am really pleased with how it turned out!

The Velcro placement for the pocket appears to be a misprint. I don't think the Velcro should be placed against the fold line. I moved mine down an inch or two. (I also used PINK Velcro for this project.) I also added top stitching after step 15 which really makes the project look nice.
Since this sling isn't bulky at all I can roll it up tightly and place it in my diaper bag which is a huge bonus! You never know when your baby might need to be carried when you least expect it!
