Lady Bird's Bonnets - Ring Sling

Title

"Where flowers bloom so does hope" - Lady Bird Johnson

As many of you know Smitten is based in Texas. Naturally, when began our quest to do a wrap for every US state flower, we started with Texas and the bluebonnet :) We had a contest a while back to design a bluebonnet themed set of stripes, and this is the design our fans chose! 

As with many of our Smitten wraps, we look to our fans to help us name and select a charity to receive a portion of the designs profits. One of our awesome fans pointed out that Lady Bird Johnson, a Texas native and wife of the 36th President of the United States, was a life long advocate for the beautification of the nation's cities. The Highway Beautification Act of 1965 was commonly called "Lady Bird's Bill". We are thrilled to be able to name this wrap after this amazing champion of wildflowers!

Tell Me More About This Ring Sling!

This is a new weave style for Smitten and we are so excited for you to try it out! This weave has the durability of canvas mixed with the flexibility and support of a woven wrap. In order to keep some grip to the wrap we used a textured weft yarn with variations in the thread's thickness. The diagonal stretch has a spring in its step and easily pulls your baby close! Pull-resistant, this weave is going to be your go to for parking lot wrap jobs!
