How to make a baby doll sling

Fabric- 55 inches by 32 inches ( I used a light weight cotton)
Coordinating thread
Two large binder clips
Sewing machine
Starch (opitional- makes sewing straight lines easier)
Ironing board

1. Iron your fabric to make it easier to work with.

2. Fold over twice, so all raw edges are tucked inside, and hem all 4 sides. I folded over 1/2 inch and starched and ironed and then folded another 1/2 inch and starched and ironed, repeating on all 4 sides. Sew a straight line to hem all edges.

3. Fold one end up 2 1/2 inches, on the long side of the fabric, starch and iron. Then, sew straight across to make the pocket for your binder clips.

4. Open up your binder clips and feed the fabric through. Both binder clips goes into the same pocket, just like you would see on a ring sling.
