Nursing Pillow Cover

from aunrea
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Nursing Pillow Cover
Nursing Pillow Cover Front
Nursing Pillow Cover Zipper Closure
Nursing Pillow Cover Back

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • sewing a curve
  • hemming
  • sewing on hook and loop tape

Pattern Description:

I never really liked the covers that you could buy for your nursing pillow and they can get expensive. It is so easy to make one out of any cotton fabric you find. You can even use other fabrics that are washable (you are going to be washing this). You can even add frills to your pillow, like sewing lace or ribbon into the seams (directions on how to do that are not included). You can mix and match fabrics and come up with your own unique design. You could even use this pattern to make your own pillow by just using the FRONT piece for the back as well and stuffing it. The possibilities are endless.

This pillow took me 2 hours from cutting to completion to make. It may take longer on your first time.

UPDATED on September 1, 2015 - Now includes zipper instructions!
