Oct 17, 2013 – Nursing Cover

As you may have read, I have been busy getting ready for our new little girl.  My latest project has been making a nursing cover to use for nursing in public.  I really have been hoping I NEVER have to do that, but just in case, I am now prepared!  I am not posting a tutorial on this project.  There were so many tutorials on the internet, you can easily pick and choose which one works well for you.  I chose to work with a tutorial from a blog called “Little Birdie Secrets“.  I used most of their tutorial and improvised when adding boning and straps at the end.

I had fun making this nursing cover.  Everything I used I had on hand from past projects.  It was so much fun picking out the fabric and I can’t wait to pick out fabric for a backup!  I didn’t use boning as the tutorial instructed.  Instead, I ended up using the rim of an ice cream bucket lid.  Another blogger, who posted a tutorial on making a nursing cover, said she used the rim of an oatmeal container lid.  That got me thinking and so I used the ice cream bucket lid.  I also like finishing up the project my own way, and having my way work out.  🙂

Along with cleaning, cooking, and stocking up on groceries for the next two weeks, this is what I have been up to lately during my wait.  Back to making some fitted cloth diapers.

Have a great Thursday! 😀
