Back home I made a template of the nursing pillow using squared paper(found in most craft stores) and set about chopping up my duvet cover. I pinned my template to the material and cut around it leaving at least 1cm
and did the same for the back only this side I had to make it in 2 pieces to allow for the cover to be removable.
I decided to add polar fleece to the front part of the cover so this protects the nursing pillow underneath resulting in less washes for the pillow, polar fleece is excellent for repelling liquid.
once I had cut the polar fleece I sewn it to the top part of the cover
I then hemmed the edges of the 2 pieces for the back where the flap would be allowing the cover to be removed. I pinned the 3 pieces together(make sure your material is inside out) and sewn around edge using the polar fleece as a guide.
once it was sewn all around I tied off the thread, trimmed the excess material and turned it inside out and inserted the pillow.
