Here is my new balearic style jute sling that I am making, just finished the pouch. Will be trying to make cracker for it out of some plastic fibres string I found in my grandma's gardening tools Grin

Looks good! Nice and even. No twist! Good job, I have a hard time with that.

I think I've seen this video already when I was trying to find some visual information on how they make balearic slings.(my slings then were just those simple split braids you can find tons of tutorials on and of course simple paracord ones) Ended up using some tutorial I found here on the forum

I also liked this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pO4ERyUXdYU

Lovely job and far better than my attempt using jute, though the jute  blue is rather nice !  I followed this tutorial

http://www.tourism-mallorca.com/foners/03angl/01ferFona.html

....go to those who know ! And am now "itching" to try it in sisal 
Cheers.

I finished this one recently, and it's already gone.† I had a couple friends over last night for a beer.† One of them really liked this sling so I gave it to him.† Although I made him throw a few ice balls with it as part of the deal.

I bought a bunch of blue leather on Etsy.† This was the first sling I made with it and I think it came out fantastic.

That looks really nice. Awesome job! Blue is a good colour for slings. I really love the electric blue in the one AmdoCraft sling I have. Reminds me of that one.

Nice slings! I have tried splicing in just before the split, but it never worked out quite like yours.

That's just about the best Balearic I've seen. Very sleek and beautiful. Bet it works well.
