Hello form the Middle East
Jan 6th, 2020 at 11:52am
 
Hi There,

At the age of 37, I am getting back to slinging! My first and favorite sling was done by my father at the age of 13 (and I still have it back home in Lebanon).

I live in Qatar at the moment... Plenty of desert and the weather is not bad Smiley

Yesterday I made my first cotton cord sling, and today a made another one (butterfly with leather pouches).

I am really surprised to have found this community and some people here sure know how to braid nice slings.

So! long intro but bottom line, I am here to learn and steam off through slinging.

See you around.

Welcome from Pennsylvania, USA!

Very nice slings!  I don't use cotton for slings very often, but I have one made from cotton that I like a lot.  If you ever get hold of that sling your father made, I'd love to see a picture of it.

first tip - try and use braided cord, it's less prone to twisting and hangs straighter Smiley

Welcome from Finland! How did you get into slinging? Was/Is your father a slinger or did he just make the sling for you?

I wouldn't say he was a slinger! But he was familiar with it in his youth. in a way he did the sling for me to gain a skill and mostly have fun
