I had a friend buy a used Petunia Pickle Bottom baby sling and she was hoping that I would be able to use the fabric to make a bag for her. And that is exactly what I did!
I forgot to get a 'real' before pic. Besides the cut down the middle, you get the idea.
A long piece of lined fabric, sewn in a loop.
I took the bottom half and stitched up both sides. Hemmed around the top.
Then I cut two strips to make a long strap.
There was even enough fabric to make her a little zippered pouch to go inside.
I was even able to incorporate the portions of fabric that had the original tags, just for fun!
