Esther’s Breastfeeding Privacy Wrap with baby-proof weight-- Free Crochet Pattern

>> Monday, March 2, 2009


I made this for my pastor's daughter who is soon to have her 1st child. I used generic colors because she and her husband have chosen not to find out if it is a boy or a girl. What is special about this wrap? It is weighted so baby will have a challenge pulling it off!
