i have tried this and it doesnt work

Don't be so quick to dismiss things.  There can always be a possibility or method you didn't consider.  There was a guy here once that was using long, wide strips of some kind of cloth (maybe it was burlap, don't remember).  But they looked much more like a scarf than a sling.  He was slinging with them though.

I'm curious about your test.  Was it with a blanket?  If so, how big was it?

Do you mean this one?

  I have never used a blanket to sling with but I have used a towel and that did work.  I imagine with practice a blanket  could work as long as it wasn't too big a blanket.

Does Linus sling sidearm ?

I've tried slinging snowballs with a scarf and it's almost impossible

It looks like underhand to me.

I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES!  Aim for the eyes!

I wonder if it isn't a low sidearm.

It's a baby blanket, so it's not much bigger than a beach towel.  If you pre-fold it to be narrow and bound (maybe cheat with some rubber bands) it should work.

I'll try it with a soccer ball and a beach towel.
