View Full Version : Broken Bling

May 28th, 2015, 12:11 AM
My 9yo dd broke her arm on the last field trip of the year. She really did a number on it and had to have surgery. To ice the cake, dh was out of town leaving me to keep everything together. Thank goodness for grandma and grandpa!

Anyhow, they sent her home with a black sling which my daughter decided was no fun. Sewing to the rescue, I blinged her sling with fabric and binding from my stash. Everywhere she goes people comment on it and tell her how fun it looks! Here is my creation. I reused the strap and it was easy to make.

Awww poor thing, but she's got the stylinest sling on the planet! Hope she is okay now, and heals quickly! :D

I'm sorry your daughter got hurt - glad she is ok....
AND - I think others may be on to something - there may be a niche market for that sling... "Bling your Sling" LOVE IT!

Hope her break heals quick. In the meantime she's in style with her Bling Sling made by her creative mother.

So sorry for your daughters accident. Wearing a sling can be very tough on the neck and shoulder for the little ones!
Glad you made it fun for her!

Now that is cool!!
I broke mine near the same age and would have loved having something like that to wear instead of what I had.
Isn't the bathing part so much fun now?? :icon_bigsmile:
