I don't know if it's bad to drag this thread up, but I'm about to make some of these wraps.
However, PUL is NOT food safe, so please find something else to line it with. I guess you can make your own waterproof fabric by boiling it in lanolin, but the process has to be done repeatedly as it wears out. Oil cloth is also not food safe, and I guess nylon isn't either (the nylon food bags I've seen are usually coated with some food safe plastic).
I'm making mine out of organic cotton. I figure it should be okay as my lunch is eaten a few hours after being packed.
If it doesn't have a pattern, what about adding some of those circle "flowers"? Another craftster added those to a dress to make it more interesting, and I can imagine that it would look nice to have a lot at the bottom (even just on one side, a flower trail of sorts) and slowly decrease down to none near the waist.
I made these today; they were SO GOOD. I ended up just pouring the batter from my measuring cup and then the blender, and the funnel I had was too small, but I think it still worked out fine! I ended up with 5 or 6 I think, but no one could keep their hands off them so some had been eaten before I even finished off the batter!
Wow, I was just thinking about making some of these and here is this thread!!
Where do you get the nylon? I wonder if I could find an old wind breaker or something? Would fused plastic (very thin piece, nothing heavy duty) work?? I imagine no matter what that they cannot be put in the dryer.
My body is a bit confused, so I like to wear a liner all the time, "just in case" aunt flow pops by for a surprise visit. Never really know when she's going to show up! I would want my liners to have a water proof lining of course!
I figure that liners will be my first step into the cloth pad world.
I made one for myself, slightly bigger and with an adjustable strap. I had a large T-shirt, but I had to go longways for the outside of the bag (basically the whole shirt) and it still wasn't really big enough, so mine isn't as gathered. I used the sleeves for the lining and another shirt for the edging.
I had a lot of trouble attaching the strap, it's pretty ugly there, I guess I just didn't get how to make it one continuous piece with the edging?
