Greetings! If you are up for a challenge for your first sling, may I suggest Teg's twining (twine-ing) over sticks method. It may seem intimidating to see at first, but actually doing it is pretty easy. It makes a beautiful sling as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pM4qah0Ijwk

If you want something quicker that is still all cordage, a "Rockman" is pretty fast to make and a decent sling (named after the user who first posted it)

Welcome from Pennsylvania, USA!

IG has some good suggestions. Or if you have a picture of another sling that you have in mind, someone may be able to point you in the right direction.

Welcome, Chee;
I suggest what we call a pj (Five Strand Sheep Shank) sling. It's very versatile and easy to use. I looked for pj's original tutorial but it's unfortunately missing. Here's my way of making one. Some of the tutorials are corrupted with irrelevant pictures. Ignore the first few.

My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. 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! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none! -Jesus the Noodler
