Nursing Blanket

All the rage with new moms - the nursing blanket (aka, hooter hider). This is SUPER easy to sew - another great project for a beginner. It's basically a rectangle of material, hemming all the sides; into the top hem insert 18in of boneing (found by the notions in the fabric store); also a lower corner has a terrycloth triangle for wiping up spit-up, etc. I made my strap velcro per the suggestion of a friend who already had a nursing blanket. This works great because you can look down at baby, but still be covered. And don't be wierded out - the picture is staged :0)

I have been meaning to make one of these for sometime now...LOVE yours, very cute!

How big was your material-what were the measurements?

I definitely wish I'd had one of these with my son... I guess there's always #2 right?! So cute. Thanks so much for linking up at Baby Week, Mandy!
