I've had two people ask me this week about making a ring sling without a sewing machine. I figured I would go ahead and post my instructions on how to do this.
2 to 2 1/2 yards of fabric (100% cotton, stretch cotton sateen, silk brocade)
Stitch Witchery (tape that you use to make a hem)
1 pair Medium Aluminum Sling Rings (www.slingrings.com)
1. Use the Stitch Witchery to hem the raw ends of the fabric.
2. Fold the fabric in half like a hot-dog (lengthwise).
3. Thread the fabric onto the rings following the video instructions here.
That's it! And the nice thing about not sewing the fabric into a long strip is that you can take it off the rings and use it as a cover or a blanket.
