These are awesome! Is there a pattern you used for this?

Hi, I traced around my favourite pads and pantyliners, then made the pattern more hourglass for the bulk. Then made a diamond big enough to clip under my panties. I have since found this great link however, with easy to follow patterns - For the fabric and inner lining I use 100% cotton flannelette or fleece and 100% wool felt. I understand hemp and bamboo are also good absorbancy. Post me a picture if you make some

There are free patterns downloadable off the web, just google cloth or reusable menstrual pads :)

The environmental impact of commercial menstrual products is considerable - people are far more aware about diapers but women use pads for quite a span. Good on you, I'm inspired. Also menstrual products in Australia are heavily taxed & expensive - another reason to be crafty.
