Because you don't know the baby (as in, you don't know if the family has a history of skin irritation, or if the baby his/herself has skin issues), I tend to err on the side of unscented/light scented. I don't use anything artificial unless I know the baby doesn't have skin irritations, and I still scent light. Lavender is always a nice, light, easy scent, and people are *rarely* allergic. Chamomile is great, but so pricey.

But that's just my take on it! I have such sensitive skin, and so does DD, that I tend to be cautious. I can't wait to see pics!!

I have to admit I am not a cloth pad person, but if y'all keep posting these totally awesome fabrics, I very well might get converted! The skulls and the one on the far right (mermaids and an anchor) are so totally awesome! Great job! Smiley

1. Saves money on disposables. Personally I'd rather save my money to buy crafting supplies than lady products
2. Comfort! Having fabric against your skin is more comfortable than the disposable stuff


Oooh, good points! I forgot that they are supposed to be really, really cost effective!

I've heard they breath better than disposables, is that true? Nothing like that swampy feeling you get mid-day...  Lips sealed

I saw these thing over and over again over here at craftster, but I have one question.

Why would you still use these things if there is a disposable version? Truly, doesn't this just give a huge mess to clean up after they're used?
I've never seen anyone with them, ever, but that could be because I'm from holland xD

Well, I msut say that I'm really curious now.

More often than not I think people prefer cloth pads for he environmental factor. Less waste, for certain. Some folks have allergies to pads, and some folks just prefer the way fabric feels. It's entirely a personal preference thing. Smiley

Oh wow, what an *awesome* tutorial! Thank you very much, onegroovyday!

And let me just say that mushroom fabric is so freakin' cute!! Grin

thanks..... my daughter picked out the mushroom material for her pads......and then she laughed at herself.....cuz "no one is going to see them anyway"

hehe, but she will and it's like wearing cute undies: even if no one sees them, you know you're rockin' the cuteness. Cheesy

Oops, I missed Fraugee's post! First off, I have to say: LOL! I have visions of you cursing lining your mold because, I've been there, too. But the good news is ...

The smell MIGHT dissipate. Sometimes coffee soap can be freaking rank for a few weeks until the ammonia smell dissipates. Is that what it smells like? Ammonia-ish? I'd let it cure before declaring it a total mishap.

As for the way it looks ... honestly it doesn't look that bad! When I saw it my first thought was it looks handmilled, which isn't a bad thing. If the smell goes away and it ends up smelling nice, you could totally use it or give it as gifts.

At least you learned something? Grin

I stopped using palm oil 6 or 7 years ago and have not looked back. I like tallow, but in Denver I get too much ignorant rubbish from Boulderites to make it worth while.

I didn't actually realize cottonseed increased lather. Leave it to Mullerslane to reaffirm my love of shortening! (Also, mine is soy/cotton mixture, too. Crisco, ftw!)
