It's a heck of a lot better than my first few woven/braided slings, that's for sure.  It looks like Daniel is well on his way.

Praise me not too much  Cheesy

Thank you for your compliments. I still have some problems, but as you said; i think i'm on good way and i have an idea of what doing next time better Smiley

I think i will try out some other material.
I think i found my favorite way of making slings (woven). It was big fun for me making it Wink

In my holiday coming next week i will try out this sling and the balearic i got from Jaegoor.
(the difference in slinging this one compared to the balearic is heavy Wink )

Best regards
Daniel

   Thanks much, Brett.  You find that you can use the techniques here on many different styles of sling.  The modified pj sling made here is a very versatile work horse.

I'm fortunate to have had Rat Man make me one one these, and I love it. This here is my go to sling and he made it quite colorful to boot. This puppy launches everything I've stuck in it, except a toy Pikachu I found at the park lol. Can't brag enough about it.

Ok, I had to read this, cause it was in the "quick view" area with a title of "New Tutorial...Sheep"...and that's all it said.  I was starting to wonder about you guys.

This sling is based on the sheepshank
 ...  
  After 5 loops (6" long") are made you begin a sheepshank but complete an  overhand knot by placing the end of the cord through all five loops and pull tight.  Repeat at other end.  No extra weavings are necessary.  Tony

I hope you like the modified sheepshank sling.  It is certainly easy to tie.  I first made a sling like this almost 40 years ago from the directions in a 1974 book "Whittlin', Whistles and Thingamagigs" ISBN 0-8117-1882-2. 
I posted this sling only because of the name.  Your tutorial is excellent. Tony

So how long of a piece of cord do I cut for a 40 inch sling?  I'd like to use that 5 6 inch way
