Nursing Cover: Bound Edge

I have spent a lot of time nursing both of my children as babies/toddlers. So my nursing cover got a lot of use. And it shrank. A lot.

And a tiny nursing cover sort of defeats the purpose of a nursing cover at all, doesn’t it???

So I decided to make a new one. And since I just got a great new Binding Foot for my sewing machine (inspired by See Kate Sew’s blanket tutorial) I decided to deviate from my nursing cover tutorial I posted a few years ago.

And I made the binding from the old nursing cover. It was plain blue. Kind of boring. This one is a busier print. (It was on the bargain table at the fabric store.)

And I used all the hardware from the old nursing cover. So this was a super quick project! And that binding foot worked really well. And normally, I hate binding things and it takes me forever. But this was amazing because I didn’t have to pin at all, let alone twice.
