Just Like Mommy...

Diva is just starting to really get into dolls lately, so I thought it would be cute for her to have a sling to carry her baby around in. Since we will be welcoming a new baby to our house in a few months, the timing is perfect for her to get into the whole Mommy thing. When she was little I used a sling all the time, and I figure I'll probably do it again-- so now we will be able to match when we go out to the park or are just playing around the house.
The sling was super easy to create. I went online and found two tutorials that I like and sort of combined them... parts from Koala Brains and this one from Momma's Milk. I did however, make mine reversible by sewing two fabrics (wrong sides) together, instead of just folding the fabric as Momma's Milk suggests. I also didn't worry about reinforcing the bottom seam since dolls aren't very heavy, and my daughter drops them on the ground anyway. Oops.
