Take Cover!

Nursing cover, that is. :) I actually managed to take pictures of the nursing cover I made for a friend before I delivered it to her... at the hospital! She got the fabric to me the end of the week, and then she went into labor Saturday night! On Sunday afternoon we got to go see the happy, healthy family and deliver the now-needed nursing cover. :)

My friend and her husband picked out the fabric--I love their choices. :) I have to admit, I sewed the top seam three times because I just wasn't happy with it! Her contrasting dark brown thread showed every little imperfection on the front as I tried to sew tightly next to the boning in the neckline. So I ripped out the seam after attempt #2, put a spool of light blue thread on as my top thread and left the bobbin of dark brown thread to go with the underneath fabric. PERFECT! MUCH better. :)

I even matched up the stripes! :)

That looks fantastic! I'm sure she loved it!!

I still haven't made my nursing cover, but I still have a couple months right? ;)

I haven't made mine either yet, Jessie. I keep telling myself that whatever I don't get done can wait until I stop working (May 1 is going to be my last day as our school system goes into June before school is out!). I'll have, hopefully, about a month then for odds and ends kinds of projects. :)

Hi Becca! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I do have a masculine print that is from the same line as the pink birds - it has blue elephants with some brown, so I'm going to use a fun brown dot fabric to coordinate. I hope to make it up within the next couple of days. You make some really cute things! ~ Kris
