For the past year I have been faithfully posting every second day on my blog which has been a big commitment that I’m quite proud of! However with only 14 more days left until my due date, I’m officially feeling the weight (literally) of pregnancy. I haven’t been feeling well the past few days, sleeping is a thing of the past and since I’m back to work chasing around kids I’m exhausted by the time I get home. So the last thing my back can handle when I get home is sitting on a computer for hours to blog, so I apologize for this post being a few days late. For all my faithful followers, forgive me over the next two weeks pre-baby and the following few weeks post-baby if my posts are a little less than regular. I hope to get into a good routine after baby comes though so don’t worry.
This post inspiration came from seeing so many unique and beautiful nursing covers around town. I was curious what these cost and was surprised that a simple cover could cost $50!! For a simple rectangle cloth with a strap there was nnoooo way I was paying that much! So for those of you that are looking for a more cost effective way to get your hands on your own cover, try out this tutorial. Trust me… it’s sew easy! haha If you can sew a straight line, you can sew this cover! I bought two pieces of fabric at Walmart for $11 so for only $5.50 per nursing cover, you can’t go wrong! Not to mention that you can choose from so many beautiful fabrics to custom make one to match your personal taste!
You will need:
- 1 yard of fabric (you will need a piece 40 inches long by 30 inches wide)
- 14″ piece of boning (at a fabric store this cost me $1)
- Spool of ribbon (about 1 inch wide)
Step 1 Wash and dry your fabric. Cut your fabric into a rectangular piece that is 30 inches wide by 40 inches long.
Measure 7 inches in from the center and mark with a pin on both sides:
