Nursing Cover Clips

 

Do you have any of these laying around from the binky clip tutorial?

 

Well, I did. A whole package of them. I know I have seen these nursing cover clips around……but I’m not sure what is used. It might be something a bit better. But I was just cleaning out the trinket box/drawer/pile that I have. Do you have one? Sometimes it’s nice to whittle it down. :o)

 

But I used the same directions from the binky clip tutorial to attach clips/buttons to both ends of a 20 inch long ribbon.

 

Attach your two clip ends to one end of a blanket, right in the center, to keep your blanket up and around your baby while nursing……for optimum coverage with an itty bitty price-tag.

 

Who doesn’t like to save a dollar or two??

 

 

**Helpful Hint: Attach the clips far enough apart to allow enough of a droop in the blanket, so that you can still see your baby. I know, it’s not as sturdy as the boning used in this tutorial, but it still gives you a little gap to peek under.

    I got those at Wal-Mart. I have seen lots of similar buttons at Jo-Ann’s. They’re not very expensive either.

    How did you attach the ribbon to the clips? Just hot glue?

    Ashley, I just found your blog through a friend and I am already addicted. I want to try to make everything it is all so cute. Where do you get all your fabric? I love it. I love these clips and it gave me an idea when I saw them. You could also shorten the ribbon and use it for a baby bib clip with cute little rags or napkins if you are on the go. No more messy bibs in your diaper bag!!

    I made something very much like this for my kids. I attatch it to a napkin at a restaurant and I have an instant disposable bib. I use them all the time.

    This would be great for Nursing homes for the patients to use to clip napkins around their neck each meal. I not sure where you found the clips? A Great project for Ladies Circles, 4-H groups to make to take to the nursing home.

    You can get the clips at an office supply store, in the aisle where they have ID badges, etc.
