I finished making the two nursing covers with the beautiful flowering prints I purchased. I used the pattern found here. The pattern was easy to follow with clear directions and great pictures. I was very pleased with the completed nursing covers.
First, I cut out the fabric for the main panel and the tie that goes around your neck. You hem the side and bottom edges by folding them over twice and sewing them in place. Later on, you do the top of the cover, adding the straps and boning.
For the straps, you fold over the fabric (right sides together) so you can sew up the sides. To help me sew the diagonal ends correctly, I found it helpful to cut the ends on an angle.
You turn the straps right side out, press flat (seam in the middle underneath), sew along the edges, and then cut the strips into two pieces (lengths specified in the directions).
You attach two d-rings to the shorter strip of fabric, folding over the end and sewing the d-rings in place.
The tricky part came with attaching the boning (which holds the top of the cover away from you so you can see your baby hands-free) and the straps to the top of the nursing cover.
Here’s one completed nursing cover. At the top, you can see the straps and how the boning lifts the fabric up a bit.
Here’s the other nursing cover.
