Clarissa wanted to give Ashley a nursing cover for her baby shower (remember the monkey cake?) Ashley had the material, a curtain and a pair of brown scrub pants. Material can be cheap if you think outside of the box and re-purpose things.
Have you ever wondered what boning is? Well, I had no idea! It is the thing that makes the cover stick out for the mother to see the baby while nursing.
I got a new ruffler foot, I'll tell you more about it tomorrow. It was my first project to use it on and the ruffle was longer then what I needed. Instead of cutting it off I wound it up and over the side. I really liked the way this looked and sewed it on. I made the ruffle out of the scrub pants. It took me a minute to make my ruffle!
