Make your own nursing blanket

I wanted to share how I made my own nursing cover. All you need is a baby blanket, needle and thread, and velcro.

Take two corners of the blanket and stitch on some velcro. That is all! SIMPLE HUH?!

When Joslyn was admitted in Children's Health Care of Atlanta, a wonderful woman came around with donated baby blankets for the children in the hospital. We kept that blanket as it was such a simple gesture...... but one that meant so much to us. I wanted to do something special with the blanket and decided to make my own nursing cover.

I went one step beyond and decided to monogram Joslyn's full name and date of birth on the bottom. Then when Katelyn came along... her name and date of birth was added too.

What is great about this idea is that you can use it for so many things... a nursing cover, a blanket, and even an emergency bib or spew rag! hehe
