Pictured is a knitted adjustable nursing clip. It measures 18 feet in length and is decorated with red and yellow knitted roses.
The nursing clip was designed and hand knitted by Nicky, owner of Lil Brit Knits. Below Nicky takes the time to answer additional questions about the design of the clip.
Q. What was your inspiration?
A. A friend of mine is pregnant with baby no.3, and we were talking about nursing and how she wanted a nursing cover, when I suggested a nursing clip instead. She loved the idea, as you can also use it for other things, like keeping baby toys tethered, and blankets to strollers. I picked the colour roses that she loves - yellow and red, and I also decided that it should be adjustable. I gave my first edition nursing clip to my friend, and she adores it. She liked the fact that it is feminine, not too baby-ish, as it's a mummy's tool, rather than just for baby.
Q. How long did it take you to make it?
A. It took me about 2.5 hours to make it and stitch it together.
Q. What made you choose the color(s) for it?
A. The colours were inspired by my friend, who loves yellow roses.
Q. Do you plan to make any more items similar to this one?
A. Yes, I do plan to make more - and use different colours and flowers.
Q. Did you enjoy making it? Why or why not?
A. Yes, I loved making it.
