Now that Mackenzie’s nursery is finished, I’ve moved on to preparing for the less cute but very necessary aspects of having a baby in the house. One of the baby gear items I’ve heard recommended most is a nursing pillow – both for nursing and as a sleep support pillow.
I followed the pattern in Lotta Jansdotter’s book Simple Sewing for Baby to create a basic, washable nursing pillow. I used leftover white canvas fabric and standard poly fiber-fill. Then, I used the same pattern and added a zipper to create a washable cover.
I plan to sew a nursing cover and two wet bags from the same fabric. I’ll post pictures and a tutorial for the wet bags soon!
