Baby Girl Nursing Cover (Shower Gift)
This is a reversible nursing cover with a matching taggie blanket and burp cloth. It was a baby shower gift. It's always a bit odd asking someone if they are going to nurse and would like a cover, but I always find they are excited to have a cover if they are. I like to make them larger than the ones you can buy in the store, 38 inches wide by 30 inches long. If you want to make your own, see my post here.
The taggie blanket is really simple to make too. It's just 2 12 inch squares of fabric, with 5 inch ribbon loops. Lay one fabric square right side up. Fold your ribbon loops in half and pin to the square, make sure the raw edges are together (so the loop will be pointing to the center of the fabric not how this picture is) After all the loops are pinned, put your second piece of fabric on top and sew around the edges, leaving a space to turn it right side out. Once it's turned right side out, sew the hole closed and continue around the entire square to make it look nice. That's it!
