I had the opportunity to make another nursing cover, this time for a friend who is expecting her third child in a couple of months! This friend also sews, but having two small boys makes it harder for her to find the time to do it, so I offered to make her this as a gift. She told me which colors she prefers, so hopefully this fits the bill!
The process was pretty much the same as with the other cover I made, only this time I also added some dark green bias tape to the top and bottom to help bring the two fabrics together (and maybe also to cover up some really crooked seams...oops!).
I got the turquoise paisley fabric at Jo-Ann, and I got the coordinating fabric a few years ago when I first discovered the wonder that is Hobby Lobby. :o)
As with the other cover, there is also boning at the top of the cover to help Mommy see Baby...although I can never find half-inch boning, so I had to settle for quarter-inch instead. Still does the trick, I just had to make the pocket for it smaller (and again, the bias tape border did a great job at hiding that extra seam!).
So here's to happy nursing. And being modest while doing it. :o)
