I'm so excited. I managed to whip out "two" free patterns today.
First, The Mini Lined Purse and now the "Color"-Ful Sling.
Both are pretty basic patterns. However, you can embellish them in any manner you desire.
The "Color"-Ful Sling will work for both a boy or a girl.
This is a pretty simple design.
I used the bold color of the button and the hair tie to accentuate the sling I made.
Here's another shot of it.
Anyway, here's the free pattern. I hope you enjoy it!

Attach a hair elastic to the center of the flap. This is the closure of the bag. Figure out where you will want to place your button on the front of the sling, making sure the hair elastic will fit snugly around the button. Remove box carefully and sew the button on to the sling.
That's it. You're finished.
