A 30 minute nursing cover
One of my sleepless nights (thanks to my belly and bladder) led to this impromptu decision:
A homemade nursing cover =)
Thanks to my phone I found this blog post which explains very nicely and simply how to make your own nursing cover.
I think it literally took about 30 minutes. Okay, maybe 60.
Of course, I took some shortcuts: instead of hemming the sides and bottom, I just used piping (after serging the edges). I also used D rings to attach the strap instead of an overalls buckle.
I’m excited to have a second cover now – one I can keep in my diaper bag and one in our living room.
I might make another just for the heck of it since it was so simple!
So if you want to make one, check out this tutorial.
A note on the boning for the curved part of the cover – I used plain boning that looks like the pictures in the tutorial. But after making it and seeing my store bought one, I would buy the boning that comes already encased in fabric – I think it is a little bit stiffer and will stay in place better.
Well that’s it for today!
Short and sweet… Have a good day!
