Excited Godmother

Two of my dearest friends are expecting at the end of April, and I get to be their baby's godmother! My excitement has been building slowly, but last night reached bubbling proportions because E and A came into the restaurant where I work and had dessert. A quick online search and perusal of the stash provided me with pattern and fabric for a baby sling. Hopefully it will be a useful item for the new mum and dad.

Modeling a baby sling without the baby seems quite pointless, but the cat wouldn't cooperate. At least one can see the general effect. I found numerous patterns which were all pretty much the same, but the measurements here and also here seemed the most accurate.

I think it's Amy Butler "Nigella" fabric in home dec. weight - the "Imperial Fan" pattern.
