Default Sling/carrier pattern??

Hello all,
I'm going to start walking & of course I want to include my chi boys, Monkey & Joey, BUT I know they will tired before I finish my walk.

I'm looking for the type that goes across my chest & the pup would sit at about hip height. I want to make it so I can have a wider choice of fabric prints.

Any ideas where I could purchase a pattern or if you have one you'd be willing to sell?

Thanks for any help.

How far are you thinking of walking ? Our late chi Rosie could walk for well over two hours before tiring, even Betty pup is building up to being a good long walker and hates to be picked up if she can walk.

I have a bum leg so I'm trying to strength it by walking, my Joey has front bowed legs because of coming (rescued) from a puppy mill & Monkey is only about 2 1/2 pds. so not sure how long a walk he's in for.
I also want to use the sling when we go to out door markets & such.

I would love a pattern too. Abby is still less than 2 lbs and though I have no doubt she'd enjoy the walks I don't think she'd make it very far.

Well darn, I have a couple of them, but unfortunately Lupita's babysitter who made them has passed away. I will tell you they are great. Sally was older.and she was afraid her feet would get tangled in Lupita's leash when they walked. I remember that she did start out with a baby sling pattern.. It is almost like an old fashioned over the shoulder newspaper carriers pouch.

I don't have a pattern, but I've been looking around for a specific carrier for Ocean, and they do have ones like you're describing for under $10 on eBay.

I still haven't located a pattern yet & starting to think about purchasing one.

I'll take a look for those on ebay, thanks Samantha.
