Do you have a sling or wrap or carrier by a WAHM? Do you recommend a brand of WAHM carrier/sling?

I have a sling by sleepy baby productions, I am also close to the mom who runs Shiny stars (on FB and her own site too) and she makes ring sling, pods, and even some structured carriers.  I love both of these WAHM.

I do have a stretchy warp that was made by a WAHM. However, after we attended the International Babywearing Conference June 2010 she stopped making them due to all the legal hoops she had to jump through and the liability issues. 

I make my own warps using jersey knit (no sew) or cotton gauze (it is NOT like the medical gauze). Slings are very easy to make also, especially if you want one that is completely unpadded. Mei Tais are easy as well (and some other Asian style carriers are even easier) but they do take a lot of time to sew. I just bought my first Rebozo, and they can be found fairly inexpensive. Mine was $25 (including shipping) and I have a friend whose sister-in-law was born and mostly raised in Mexico. They said they could pick some up for under $20 in Mexico for me.
