I’m happy to announce that I’ll be hosting the Sandhill Sling Sew-along starting next month! After having so much fun with the Pepin Tote Sew-along at the end of last year, I was excited to plan another! Connecting and getting to know folks was such a fun part – plus it’s fun! We all need a little fun these days!
Sandhill Sling Sew-Along Sign-up
I’ve put together a tentative schedule for the SAL and will run it the same way I did the Pepin Tote SAL, via a once-weekly email beginning Wednesday, February 17th (ending approximately March 17th). Each email will have written information as well as a video of that week’s steps. Click the link below to sign up to receive the sew-along newsletters:
Be sure to check out the #sandhillsling on Instagram to see so many amazing slings that have been made already! We can use the #sandhillslingalong as the sew-along #!
I’m hoping to schedule the SAL for four weeks, plus a wrap up email at the end. Even if you don’t have time or aren’t sure you want to join in this time, you can sign up now and keep the emails for when you’re ready! It’s a casual thing, no pressure to keep up with any pace. The only requirement is that it’s FUN for you. Sewing is fun!
In case you need bag-making supplies for the SAL I have most items available in my shop (I’m eagerly awaiting my restock of the Metal Snap Kits, but I don’t have an ETA yet):
- Sandhill Sling Pattern
- Webbing + Hardware kit (this kit is a combination of the 1.5 yards you’ll need if using webbing for the strap as well as the strap hardware).
- Sandhill Hardware Kit (hardware only if you only need the hardware)
- Webbing by-the-yard (instructions DO include making your own from fabric, too, so whatever works best for you!), you’ll need to order two yards for the sling, although you’ll only be using a yard and a half. If you plan on making two bags, order three (3) yards!
- Zipper Kit for View A (includes both zippers you need to sew this view)
- 18″ double pull zipper if you plan on making View B
- zipper pulls, totally optional, but fun! Leather pulls or waxed cord
If you’re making View B, I show a metal snap here (and it’s listed in the supplies requirements). Although I don’t have Starter kits at the moment, you could definitely substitute in a turn lock or a Loxx fastener. I have a video on how to install a turn lock (and you can check out the Loxx website for an install video. So, either of those options would work, too! Gotta love options!
