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!

  1. Hi Erica,

    Looks wonderful, you have such great taste! I loved the change you did with the corners! I want to make similar cover for a good friend who’s expecting and i was looking for a good tutorial. What other changes have you made? Did you keep the original sizes?

    Thank you and best wishes!!
