Trying to find a sling that works

I'm hoping you can help me. I use a Baby Bjorn and find it comfortable, but I find that it positions the baby too high for me to nurse her in it. It can be hard to perform tasks in, because she is straight up and down and I can't bend over well without smushing the poor thing. I'd like something a little more relaxed, that I can wear her in at home and outside of the house. I have a Nojo sling, but when I put her in it, it closes over her face, which I don't like, and her neck is at an awkward angle. It is the kind with the padding along the edges. I can't imagine leaving her in it for any length of time. She's 2 months old and learning to hold her head up. I'm 5'6" and 165 lbs, though losing weight (thankfully!). I have in mind a sling, but it has to be something she can be either awake or asleep in, so her head has to have some support.
I can sew, so patterns are also an option if someone has one they love.
Thanks so much for your time,
mom to Ashryn
