    Great! They do seem to be 'needed' these days. Great fabric too.

    I'm past the breast-feeding stage (barely) but what a cool cover-up :)

    I made a baby quilt for my GodDaughter and she asked for a matching sling. Of course the fabric I used was not on sale when I went back and you have to have two 2 1/2 yard single pieces for the sling and lining, so 5 yards at regular prices. Yikes!!! Came out really cute though.
    got the rings and a link to the pattern here:

    Aren't those just the neatest little things?! They are so simple and quick to make and.. so much appreciated by moms!
    Your fabrics are so pretty! Lovely project!! :thumbup:

    I made one for my daughter, then all her friends saw it and asked if I could make them one also. I was so happy to oblige as I have known each of the girls for a long time and knew they were so appreciative!

    Thanks for sharing, it's lovely!

    It's a lovely gift. I'm a maternity nurse and love it when new moms decide to breast feed!

    Gosh, what I used to use (43 years ago) was a safety pin holding a thin baby blanket or cloth diaper over my shoulder.

    How things have changed...but even at this date and time I still hear older women trying to convince their daughters that breast feeding was for "Peasants" and were only showing that you couldn't afford to buy milk for your baby!!! My own mother was like that, always on my case when I visited or saw her in town, as if I was going to whip out a boob and cram it in the kids' mouth in front of everyone. She was still ashamed that since she gave birth to me at Grandma's place and in the depression could not "afford to feed the baby correctly," she had to breast feed me!!

    Honest, there are still some out there like that!!!

    They are great gifts. I am still nursing my son and I made one as well. Spending $25 or more was way too much for less then a yard of fabric on the store bought ones.

    I've never seen or heard of a breast feeding cover up. Sad really, that something like this needs to exist.

    I know the feeling. My ex mother in law was the same way. I can remember being out in public with her and my son getting hungry.So I fed him...I did cover up out of respect for other people....but she got up and left restraunt because she did not want to be "seen" with a breast feeding mom. before she walked out she told me that I was an embarassment to the family because I was breast feeding...

    I made several of those for my daughter. She loved them. I also made bunches of nursing pads for her. So easy. I took a cd and traced around it. Then used the decorative scallop type stitch and went around the outside. I used a cute print on the outside one and plain white flannel for the inside layers. No real need for anything fancy, but it was just cute. After I sewed them up I carefully cut around the scallops. They held up really well with lots of washings. My daughter loved them and used them for quite awhile then passed them on to her friend that had a new baby. Who knows, they may still be floating around somewhere.
