Handmade Nursing Cover

Hi, hi!

There hasn’t been much teaching work for me this week, although I was a librarian for a day.  Ha! I know, it was a bit crazy.  At least I understand how the books go on the shelf, but man oh man… I had the task of checking the shelves to make sure everything was in its right place, and no, everything totally was not in its right place!  PS: your back gets sore when you’re bending down to fix the bottom shelves.

Sorry about the lighting in these pictures.  I have lighting fail.  Anyways, I had this fabric that I love, so I sewed myself a nursing cover.  I’m thinking I’ll make one more for those times when laundry has to happen and I need me a nursing cover, STAT.  That’s how I imagine mommy life being.

To make this nursing cover, i used the instructions over at Freshly Picked.  It was pretty straightforward, and all I needed to buy was some boning (which I trimmed a bit more than she says), and some D-rings.  Ooooh, and my needle broke!  This is exciting for me because it’s never happened before.  I realize now that I should have swapped that needle out for a new one because it was slightly bent (before it broke, even), and so incredibly dull.  Lessons learned.

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.
