Anyway, on to the fun. I got this genius idea for nursing cover clips from Ashley at Make It and Love It. I tweaked mine a bit but the idea is the same. These straps turn any blanket into a nursing cover! So all you have to do is pack one of these in your diaper bag and then clip it onto your baby's blanket when he's ready to eat. Freaking brilliant!
Sorry about the image quality. I use my phone and I sew at night after the kiddo's in bed, so no natural light. Terrible combo for picture-taking.
For this project you will need:
-Soft fabric (I used flannel--it comes it tons of cute prints and will be comfy around my neck. Plus it's cheap!)
-Basics for sewing
First I cut out two strips of flannel that were each 1.5 inches by 22 inches and pinned them right-sides together.
Next, I sewed up each of the long sides using a 1/4in seam allowance. Then I turned my tube inside-out.
Then I just ironed it flat with the seams on the sides to make sure it was nice and smooth.
I zig-zagged the ends and snipped off the excess.
Yep. I'm, like, really bad at that. Workin' on it.
And finally I just attached a suspender clip to each end and sewed it down.
And, gee, that's it! I plan on making a few more of these so I always have one on hand. I am so obsessed with this idea....and the best part is that it's so easy!
Happy weekend, everyone!
