Slinging Away with H2O 2GO Slings

I believe the last time I mentioned the H2O 2GO sling was this past summer when I had cut out pieces to make for my church’s craft sale.

I also made a Seinfeld-themed sling for my sister’s birthday.

Oh, and I made a Star Wars-themed sling for my friend.

Light Saber Zipper Pull

Complete with a custom light saber zipper pull. Jay decided that the zipper pulls I already had wouldn’t work. So he made one for me.

There are more H2O 2GO slings in this post, and I haven’t yet counted, so let’s see in total how many of these I made in 2022.

There were the 2 from the original post, 1 Seinfeld, 1 Star Wars and 4 for church = 8.

Once my brother-in-law saw my sister’s sling, he wanted one. (9)

I was trying to get fancy with my picture-taking. Here are the ones I made for church.

The floral ones sold at the church’s sale. The sports-themed ones did not.

In the meantime, I had to make one for Jay’s coworker. (10)

Last year for Christmas I made 24 lunch bags for the guys in a halfway house program. This year I decided to make them some water slings. I decided to use the 2 that I had left over, so that meant I only had to make 22 more for them. (32)

To make things easier I decided to use just two different colors for the interior pieces, and then I had a handful of different fabrics for the exterior.

My group purchased water bottles to go in them, and then I wrapped them for delivery.

While I was batch sewing I decided to make my best friend and her husband a couple of slings for Christmas. They live in DC and do a lot of walking, so I thought they could be useful. (34)

Then, since I apparently hadn’t made enough of these, I decided to make one for my niece in Colorado. (35)

She’s the one who designed my logo for me.

The rainbow zipper worked great with this fabric. And, of course, I had to include cats.

That makes 35 H2O 2GO water slings. But wait! There’s more… I made a New England Patriots themed sling for Jay, but I haven’t taken a picture of it. That brings the total up to 36.

You would think after making that many I have perfected the pattern. NOPE. I’m still not happy with how mine turn out. Oh well. I think it’s time to move on to a different pattern. Maybe.
