    When I was nursing, I made one out of a receiving blanket. I ran a casing along the long side of the blanket, ran some lightweight boning through it so I could peek down and see what I needed to but no one else could, and made a strap to put it around my neck. Very inexpensive to make.

    This one is really pretty! I hadn't thought of just adding straps to a blanket for nursing. I was going to do something similar to a quilt to keep it attached to the stroller so it doesn't slip out the bottom...but never got around to it.
    I used a large flannel recieving blanket to nurse my daughter. But when she got to a certain age, she decided she didn't like anything over her head and so she used to pull it off...not fun in the mall...

    Thanks to everyone who helped! You guys are awesome! I will start on one of these right away! I have a few months until the twins are due, so a little time.

    You guys made my night!
    You may want to make it over sized if she is having twins. My DD often nursed them both at the same time :wink: Too big in this case would be better than too small :D:D:D

    I made several for my daughter. The addition of boning was a great thing. It made it easy to see what was going on with baby, but still staying modest. She loved them.

    I also made her a bunch of nursing pads. I had flannel left over from a raggy quilt I had made so I used a cd as a pattern. The first ones I only used two layers of flannel, but for the second I used three layers. I just stacked them and then used a decorative zigzag around the edge. I tried several but decided the one that was kinda wavy or petal-y worked best. Then I took my small scissors and trimmed the edge. She said the petal edge worked great because it didn't show as much. She said that the cotton flannel felt so much better then the ones you can buy. Plus they were washable. I also made her a pretty diddy bag to put them in when she had to take them with. I made it from an Asian print so it would not look like what it was. Plus she could use it for something else later on. They did not take long to make or even a lot of fabric and would make a great addition to the nursing covers.

    Good point! I will do that! Gosh...I can't imagine nursing two at once! I could barely handle one! :)

    Wow, I had no idea something like this existed. When mine were babies all I had was a blanket.
