This is the purple batik sling I made for a friend in town, who just became a grandma. She asked specifically for purple, which was so fun to shop for, escpecially in batiks, and gave me an excuse to order online rather than rely on the little stash at the fabric shop. It’s my favorite sling fabric yet– just the right weight and strength when you double it up. I’m partial to batiks anyway, but this is so yummy. It’s made by Avlyn. Good stuff.
This is Anna (8) reading to Ella (1). Gets me every time.
This is another new grandma sling from earlier in the fall. I had to stick to the fabric shop, so I ended up with babyish prints, which I wasn’t thrilled with. It was the best I could do in a sky blue scheme, given the circumstances. Whodathunk Grandmas would be slinging? Although now that I think of it, that was EVERY grandma we ever saw in China. I guess we’re just catching up! Someday I will join the worldwide ranks of Babywearing Grandmas, should I tarry, and should my daughters ever leave home and marry and reproduce. That’s a nice thought.
