Nursing Cover is tight

Now when I say tight, I mean nearly non-existent!
So with that in mind I have been trying to use up things I have had sitting around, making them into things I actually need.

I need a nursing cover. So I scrounge through all the stored craft items and figure this will do! I throw a haphazard hem around an entire yard of fabric, throw some scrap fabric on for a neck tie and was HORRIBLE!!!

I showed DH and he tells me "It looks like a welders apron".
So, I toss it into my project bin and refuse to think about it.
Since then I have been watching FSOT and ebay for a cheap nursing cover. But haven't been able to force myself to spend what little money we have when I know I could have a free one.

The clock is ticking, I have one month before baby girl gets here and I need a nursing cover! I realize I could just use a blanket, but I feel more comfortable knowing that I am covered and am not going to have it drop away unexpectedly.
So, out comes the "welders apron" for another go.
This time I looked up measurements on most nursing covers, cut it down to size, actually take time to do the hem!!! And I replace the scrap fabric with a piece of cream ribbon.
Now I realize it's a bit plain, but hey, its free, will do the job and it turned out NICE! WOO HOO!
Thanks for letting me share!

Re: Nursing Cover

looks nice! I would have layed the one that I got at the thrift store for $2 and taken pictures of the shape and measurements for you! And plain is fine, you don't want a ton of attention with a flashy cover anyway.
