The one thing that I haven’t been able to do with these slings is walk our pup in this wintery weather. So, I went on a Google quest for a solution and found this site to making a babywearing coat. These instructions outline taking a coat and creating a panel that can be zipped into the front around baby.
I began this project by shopping the thrift stores for an activewear coat (all I have are wool coats). The next step was to determine the pattern to use for your height and coat/zipper size. The linked instructions are really detailed and to be honest, I didn’t have the patience yesterday to read through the 28-page document. So, my husband assisted with measuring and figuring out which pattern to use and what supplies I needed to get. After a run to the fabric store (just before closing), I now have all the supplies. Stay tuned for my progress.
Has anyone completed any projects similar to this? Or have advise for a newbie on sewing projects?
