My sling

The other day I ripped a big hole in my baby sling. Broke my heart. So some one anonymously suggested that I use what's left to make memento's for the kids with it.

Which is bloody brilliant!

I decided what I'm going to do with it. A couple of years ago, my mom bought these cross stitch Christmas Ornament patterns for me to stitch. They are personalized name trees. I haven't stitched them yet, and I need to buy one for Grayson. I'll use the sling fabric as the backing for all 6 ornaments! That way we all still have a piece of it, and it remains a family heirloom. But I don't end up keeping a useless, but very sentimental hunk of fabric.
