Hello everyone my Name is Jeremy, and I live in the U.S. in Tennessee. Ive made my own slings for quite aome time now, I make them of paracord and really feel like ive mastered my design, when I get an opportunity I will post some pics of my work. Im really trying to get into the Balearic style slinging and sling making right now Im just not happy with my slings yet, Ive got  twisting and braiding part figured out but REALLY struggle to get from the Knee through the pouch to the other knee, im gonna keep at it till I get it though!Smiley maybe some of you out there have some pointers for me!Smiley

Welcome! Just like the rest of slinging, it is mostly just trying things out and repetition to get that part right. You'll figure out a method that works for you, just don't be afraid to try something you haven't before.  Do you use clips to hold the braid together while you are braiding the pouch?

Once, Toivo and Eino were building a house, but as Toivo worked, he would occasionally throw a nail over his shoulder. When Eino asked why he was being so wasteful, he said, “The heads are on the wrong side!” Eino looked at him and said, “You dummy, those are for the other side of the house!”
