Before the idea of riveting occurred to me, I very briefly experimented with sewn pockets, I wish I had still had this sling, it was a beauty in some ways, but very difficult to sew. Sadly I let go of it slinging one day and it flew into a river... in India. Probably floating in the bay of Bengal somewhere to this day. I honestly hope it was found by a shepherd and is being put to good use.
Want to buy this sling? You can't. It's lost never to return.
