So, I’ve seen variations of the DIY infinity nursing scarf bouncing around online for some time now and always thought they looked like a pretty awesome way to stay ahead of the nursing modesty game (By the way, that’s just my personal comfort level – seriously, more power to ya, whoever embraces public breastfeeding with more enthusiasm than I!)
“Overall this was SUCH a simple project!”
Anyway, I figured why not give it a go? I love scarves, tend to jump at the chance to design anything myself fabric/color wise and honestly, this was a useful project that I was able to keep under $5, thanks to a couple of Joanne’s coupons and some pretty nifty on-sale fabric. Sweet, right?
Overall this was SUCH a simple project – although I did end up needing to supplement my fabric (managed to turn it into a ‘fashion’ choice, what can I say?) with an extra panel to make sure the whole thing was ultimately long enough (NOTE: 60in long really is the minimum if you’re fairly tall like I am).
I’ve noted below to try to pick a stretchy type fabric since this will ultimately be lighter and more adaptable to baby’s positions/size etc. BUT I personally chose to go with a heavier, thicker cotton fabric since we’re having a November baby and I really wanted to make something that would keep out the cold during nursing and whilst I’m rocking my new favorite scarf during the winter!
What You’ll Need:
- stretchy fabric 60in X 40in (as I mentioned I chose to add a second, brighter accent fabric so it worked out like this: Fabric 1: 45in X 40in, Fabric 2 for just a pop of color: 15in X 40in)
- coordinating threads
- sewing machine
