What are you most proud of? The fact that these are twice eco-friendly: By washing them instead of using disposable ones, it's less garbage AND I used mostly recycled materials for them, so they're CHEAP to make !! :-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try and you will never look back !! They are very EASY to make and CARE for, and I have included lots of information and tips on how to wash them. All my friends who have tried them are now enthusiastic about making their own pads !

How well do these actually absorb. What do you fill them with? Great idea....first time I have seen anything like this.

I just can't imagine going back to plastic/disposable pads any more. They work fantastic for me, and the nice thing is that I have all sorts of pads, with thicker and longer ones for my heaviest flow..

I have used cloth pads frequently and although it requires some creativity at work or in public places they are very comfortable and work really well.
