The best thing I ever made for myself!
Believe it or not, I have made something that's all for me! A nursing cover. My good friend, Reagan, was pregnant with her 2nd baby at the same time I was pregnant with the twins. She asked me to make her a nursing cover. It was so fun to make, I decided to make one for myself. I figured that nursing twins necessitated a cover a little larger (38x26) than the average smaller cover, in case I needed it while I nursed both babies. Turns out, nursing two at the same time is really not for me, but I have loved having a larger cover while I'm nursing one-on-one. I also made it with adjustable straps secured with poly-resin snaps (have I ever mentioned how much I heart my industrial snap press??). Traditional nursing covers made with the d-ring are just too complicated to adjust and can slip.This one is super easy to adjust, stays in place when the baby or your two-year old tug on it and it looks a lot better, too. I also added in the corset boning, so I can peek at baby easily through the top. A nursing cover is definately one of those "baby must haves". Especially when made with some super cute designer fabric. Gotta run... there's always a baby to feed :)
