Cloth pads are both very comfortable and much better for the environment. And the bonus is, you can make them yourself, with some super easy-to-find recycled materials and a basic sewing machine. They're super cheap to make too ! This tutorial shows you how to make your own pads, with a lot of step-by-step pictures and detailed isntructions, as well as full patterns to make 2 SIZES of pads. You'll also be able to customize the absorbency of your pads by changing the number of layers on inside absorbent fabric. I like to choose really pretty fabrics to make my pads, so that having my period also is a "nice" time of the month: I get to use my beautiful pads ! ;-) Wearing those cloth pads really feels much better on your skin than the plastic disposable ones. I always smile while in the "disposable pads" alley of my local supermarket because that's something I know I'll never buy again !! Also included in the tutorial are tips on how to keep your pads looking pretty and unstained for years, and how to wash them.
