My cloth pads
Added Sep 28, 2008
I’ve been pretty curious about cloth pads for sometime since I heard a friend is using it. My son was cloth-diapered when he was a baby, and he never had any problems on his skin. So I thought that might work for me too.
A few searches on the net lead me to this thread on crafster: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=18462.0. They look so cute, so I made one to try. It ended up so comfortable that I had to sew some more for the rest of the time of the month. I use scraps of double-gauze cotton from my dress project, and some layers of baby burp cloth in the inside. I like them because they remind me of my son’s cloth diapers.
Anyway, my son said that my winged cloth pads look like vampire bats. I find his comment amusing. After all, they both suck blood.
