Sew and Tell Friday


I know that this is a lot of pictures for one little thing, but bear with me!!

I have this friend that i have been telling i will make a 'hooter hider' for and i keep setting it aside and putting other projects ahead of it. All the things i need have been on my sewing table for ages, i was just procrastinating. Then today was Friday and there is something magically motivating for me about sew and tell. I somehow manage to get things done.

This was a fast easy thing to get done today(maybe an hour total) so i knew i could get it made and share it tonight plus it would get to my friend sooner. Now i just hope that she is nursing as much as she was since the baby is a bit bigger now and still wants it!!!



i have made one once before and the second time was definitely smoother. Thanks to Made by the Mama Monster for a fun easy to follow tutorial. Don't forget to go to Amylouwho's and see what everyone else made this week. I have gone and had a peek and there were tons of great things!!!!

oh yay! I love it! I love finding new things to make for showers, etc. Love how you just whipped that up :) I forgot today was Friday, so I'll go link up my blush quilt. Yay!

Hee, hee. Took me a moment. I am slow that way, you know! Fabulous friend that you are. What a very clever thing to make for someone who's nursing their sweet little baby!

Lesly said...

Hooter hider! I laughed out loud! This is a great idea - and some women nurse their children for years - maybe your friend is one of those?!! Thanks for sharing!

Michelle said...

LOL! I'd never heard of a "hooter hider" before, but it's fabulous. Hmmmm. I have a cousin that's expecting. Wonder if she's going to need one....

E will randomly still just say, "Hooter Hider!!!" My friend is using it now for her little one. I loved mine. Thank you.

Oh man, I totally wish I'd had one of these. I'm making one for my sister next week (maybe). That's a great fabric!

Dayna said...

I love your fabric choice! I've made many of these, and I change a little bit about each one. It's been a while, though, since we live in a situation where I don't know many nursing mamas (or at least not many who want to cover themselves). I think yours is beautiful, and I certainly hope that your friend will like it. They're such fun gifts.

Thanks for the tute link - I have everything to make one but this will make it so much easier!
