WANTED: Does this exist? A sturdy children's arm sling in a pretty fabric...

DD (4) has a broken collarbone. Her sling from the hospital is just a bit of thin calico and doesn't hold her arm very firmly, and it falls out at night.

Does anyone make more sturdy arm slings for children, perhaps in a nice fabric???!

I don't know if you can buy one, but you wouldn't need much material (or much in the way of sewing skills!) to make your own - it's only a triangle of material.

We used to make them in Girl Guides - any square of material, fold into a triangle and tie up. Took 10seconds to do.

My mum used headscarves for me when I fractured my arm !
