Nursing Cover

May 26, 2009 Sarah Coggins

My second project of the weekend was to make my own nursing cover. I had originally planned to purchase one and found a range of prices from $22 to $60. When I came across a free pattern online, I decided to give it a try myself.

I purchased 2 complementary fabrics – the floral pattern for the body of the cover and a teal colored fabric for the straps. On one of the inside lower corners, I sewed in a baby washcloth to create a little pocket for extra nursing pads or for use as a baby facial wipe. The total cost was about $12.
