  6. Hey Rachel, I was viewing your nursing shawl tutorial and since I'm not so crafty with sewing the directions are over my head ;P I would like to have one of those all around nursing shawls though because I absolutely LOVE the idea that it goes all around you. Could you message me back on my blog or in email (sisi.loves.joe@gmail) and let me know if you could make one for me and how much it would cost. Will be having my baby in the beginning of September and I don't currently have a nursing cover. Thanks so much! Your blog is awesome by the way :D
