    Nursing Cover

    These are super handy for a nursing mother and they are fairly simple to make. This one is made from about 1/2 yard of material (you can use more if you prefer) edges are folded twice over, ironed and stitched. At the top I make a little casing for the boning to fit in and I slide it in before sewing it off on the sides. (Boning can be purchased at JoAnn’s). I made matching ties for the neck piece(sew strips of fabric right sides together, then turn right side out, stitch to cover. I just tie mine off but you can also use D rings to fastin. Try it!!…

    Jam Jar Decorating!

    My crafts are centered around the baby shower I am throwing this week. For one of the prizes I am giving away a homemade jar of Strawberry Jam. So I decided to decorate it with the theme of the shower (brown and blue). I used scrapbook paper on the top and around the base and printed out a cute clipart picture of a mommy and baby (edited to my colors) and added wording and the date of the shower. I put some ribbon around the top ring and added a descriptive tag on top with a ribbon bow. To view more please visit my blog!
