I made my little nurturers baby doll slings for Christmas.  Alice especially took to hers.  She loves carrying her baby doll around in it.  Caleb has worn his some, but I think I should have made it a little bit longer so its not so high into his face.  Either way, they are super cute with them.  And these were super easy to make too!  I followed this pattern.  I did have to read through the instructions several times before I got what they were saying.  I made one and then realized it wasn’t lined.  So I then made Alice another one.  Well I made a mistake on the 2nd one when cutting the rounded bottom and cut it inverted instead.  So then I made a third one for Alice.  By the time I made Caleb’s I didn’t even have to look at the directions!  All was not lost with the second one that I messed up on because I made a cute purse out of it.  It started out as a purse for Alice, well it may end up being my fun spring/summer purse.  We’ll see.  I’ll have to get a picture of that sometime soon. 

Update: Oh and here’s a video of the kids opening their slings.  Not that its an awesome video, since Bob was taking pictures and videoing.  He’s such the multitasker.
