Nursing Cover

I’m planning on breastfeeding, so it was obvious that I would have to make my own nursing cover. There were several tutorials online and I chose a tutorial by Freshly Picked. I made some small alterations to the tutorial (one was choosing to miter the corners which you can see in the  bottom photo).

I used some fabric I had in my stash, but had to buy D-rings and some boning.

This fabric is extra special because I bought it about 2 years ago when Jake and I came to California to interview for my job. After my job interview we celebrated by going to Sew Modern (on Pico Avenue) and I bought one yard of this fabric. I’ve been saving it for something special–it’s so perfect to use it in this way!
