I've seen this stunning baby carrier all over pinterest with captions like "DIY sling - two rings, long strip of fabric...this is great b/c you can pick super cute fabric!" It took me forever to find the original source, and when I did, to my dismay, it was just a photo with no source for the sling, merchandiser or tutorial.  

But you can use the same color concept and make your own with the tutorial below this one.
