I have been doing just a little bit of sewing lately.  I made my wonderful stepmom (T) one of my aprons that I love to make.  She wanted one to match her kitchen colors so my sister went with me and helped me pick out the material.

I think she was happy with it.

I also made a nursing cover for myself and then two more for friends from my church.  We are all do within a week (or 10 days) of each other.  Both of them are probably going to deliver sometime this weekend.  One is due Friday and the other is being induced on Friday – yes, I am jealous.

Anyway, I had never heard of this particular nursing cover until someone told me about it while I was working in our church nursery.  She said they were called Hooter Hiders (don’t google that name).  After getting past the name, I did find an online tutorial that showed you how to make something similar.  I just love free online tutorials.  This was a good one.  So below are the results:

I couldn’t fit all three into the picture.

And you can tell by the next picture that these covers have boning in them that allows you to see the baby as they are nursing.

I am hoping I like this type of cover.  I honestly have never used an “official” nursing cover.  I have only ever used a blanket.  We shall see.
