Make your own menstrual cloth pads »
Type of item: Functional
Style: Funky, Casual
A fat quarter of designer fabric for outside layer, and only RECYCLED materials for the inside layers. :-)
What was your inspiration?
When I started to realise how much garbage the disposable pads produced in the life of a woman, I decided I needed to change.
I looked online, saw ones I liked, but with features I liked less... so I made my own pattern, experimented and finally published my own pattern :-)
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 !
