Mine was only one material too :/ I might improve it and get video of throwing if the weather can behave. Yesterday out annoyed heavily and then melted completely so the ground is slushy mud. Fun.

Nice prize!!
Iím happy with your conclusions, I did miss the mark On the rules but Iím also happy with my submission.
Probably not going to steal any win as I feel one submission is fair and was totally my mistake on not reading the rules. Hopefully a few more people join the quest.
Be great to see some more creativity.

The rules did say multiple submissions are allowed. Joe is going to be hard to beat anyway, and it doesnít really give him enough credit if he wins because nobody else met the criteria. You never know... I might even come up with a second place prize Grin

Nice looking sling NOC!

I'll admit I'm completely torn.† I would like to win it, but I'd love seeing some other submissions as well.

OK, I have the pouch part done, only the cords left... And the video (most tricky part since I have an "old" camera and a dumbphone...)

I actually had a go at it today,  but unfortunately it was a failure that would make me look like an idiot. Lol. In a funny way.

Is there a way to push back the time limit ? I have less time for me now that I have my kids and my wife 24H a day at home, and no way to get out to try the sling...

Covid-19 really has a bad timing :p

Sorry Caldou,
This challenge has been open since November 10, 2019. There was plenty of time before the quarantines swept around the globe, and you still have 5 more days to try. The rules didnít say you canít do the throwing part indoors Grin

I  totally understand the lack of  leisure time with quarantines... I have 3 kids under 6 years old in the house, and my wife and I have to get work done for our jobs with crazy, bored kids running around. My wife is also pregnant with kid #4, and she feels nauseous a lot, so I do most of the cooking.    Free time just doesnít exist in my house, and itís tough, but hang in there.

Try to focus on the blessings more than the things you might miss out on. For example, my youngest son took his first steps yesterday, and I was only home to see it because of the quarantine!  If you miss the chance to throw a tennis ball from a piece of trash, itís a very small loss in the end, but even if you donít make the deadline, I hope you will show off your creation Smiley

Don't worry, I wasn't really serious Wink I have enough slings at home to be able to restrain from crying if I don't have one more Smiley

I will still try to complete my sling, it is a fun project (is there bonus points if you use a trashed trash bag ? :p )

Good luck with your almost 4 kids ! I have wayyyy enough with only 2 ^^

And the contest rules says that I can't do the throwing part indoors... Not the House Rule, especially when the Rule Enforcer is at home instead of going to work like she usually do ! :p
