My [barely used] nursing cover was made by a mommy in my office. I purchased the fabric so she only charged me $5 for her to sew it and create an adorable cover.
Most of Joanna's bows are from Dalma Pearl Designs, which was created by a friend of mine that knits. She loves personalizing things and I love what she makes!
I just ordered new sandals for Joanna from Tater Tots. I was able to pick the fabric and she even made a matching headband. She also makes incredibly cute bow ties, diaper wipe covers, and many other super cute accessories.
My mom has made Joanna about a dozen different things with her knitting needles: 2 wrap sweaters, a skirt, 5 hats, 2 blankets, and 3 headbands. That woman is incredible. I hope to one day be as crafty and generous as her.
If I purchased these products from a store, I would have spent over $100. Instead, I spent around $40 and it went directly to the moms without the middle [wo]man.
I was tempted to compare the support of a community to the support of a bra, that the most weight isn't carried on the straps but rather 80% of the weight is in the band that goes all the way around. But then Joanna started crying so I'll just say this: Support is great.
