<--------- Licensed firearms instructor.
A) This rocks so hard.  Sometimes when I'm darting out the door and throwing a bunch of handguns in a bag to teach class I wish something was wrapped around them.  I often take my silicone embedded cloths and wrap them.  I could take each one of them in their individual cases but I'm just one girl and that's a LOT of cases so I'll generally snug 10-12 of them in one range bag.  This would be perfect for that!
B) The fabric is so freekin' fantastic.
C) Very well made.  You do excellent work!
D) I'd like to take a moment to invite all you gals who are "scared of guns" out to a class where you handle EMPTY guns with no ammo in the room.  It's a hunk of steel and polymer.  The fact that a picture on the internet makes you squeeze your butt cheeks together only tells me you need some proper education. (:   It's also a sport ya know!

To answer the last 2 questions...
Quote
I really want to make one now! All these amazing reviews are getting me excited
Just wondering-- is the little insert thing for extra leakage protection, and then you change the whole pad when you need to, or are you supposed to change the insert thing when you need to and keep the outside of the pad on...? I hope that made some sense
I change the whole thing.  You can make different weight inserts for different flow but the cover I think is made to hold the actual insert in place and over your bloomers.  Before I tried them I wondered the same thing.  Now that I've used them, I know I want an entire fresh pad at every change.

Of course if I did have a bunch of them, I would probably get lazy and not launder quickly, which would be bad.
You just keep a bucket of cool water in a discreet place.  Toss 'em in the bucket when you change them and then wash them all at once.  This is the "if you have a bunch of them" option.  I don't have many yet.  (about Cool so I rinse them thoroughly and wash them with whatever load I happen to be washing.  Hubster thought that was gross but then I told him that I've been bleeding on my clothes for 16 years and washing them with his stuff and he never knew.!  Grin  It's not gross.. really.
BTW,, still bleeding hard as ever (be 2 weeks now) and I've YET to leak out of these.  That is HUGE for me!

I just posted in another thread about this but I wanted to jump over here again and thank the author for the great tute.  Her version works SOOOO WELLLL!  This is the first opportunity I've had to try them (yeah me,, boo PCOS! ).  Here's what I wrote in the other thread.

I just had to chime in on this. 
I have PCOS so I rarely have a period.  When I do tho.... whoa nellie, is a monster!!!!!
I was really worried about the leak factor, the absorbancy, if they would stay put... all that jazz.
I made a few and stuffed them under the counter.  Well,,, a week ago the raging river came and I got to try them out.
OMG.  Why. In. The. World.  did women start BUYING period products?  This is SO MUCH BETTER!!!
I would (am) bleed so much that I had "diaper rash" every time.  Well I've been flowing heavy for almost a week now and there is no sign of a rash.  I'm in good shape!
I would be changing traditional "overnights" at least bi-hourly if not hourly with this flow and I can go 3-4 hours with cloth.
I made my inserts with 3 layers of thin terry and a spiral of stitching for my heaviest flow.  Now I know that this was probably unnecessary but the insurance is nice!
I would encourage anyone, regardless of your situation (altho--- I'm boggled by the thong idea) to try this out.

Thanks everybody!  I'm so flattered by your comments!
Haiku was easy peasy.  Don't let all the computations scare you.  It was a really quick knit!

Ok, you did a wonderful job on both sweaters!  I want to knit the BSJ so badly but I don't want to buy a whole book or a kit! I've perused the links on the knitwiki and haven't found anything suitable to buy.
Can anyone suggest a link to JUST THE PATTERN or is anyone willing to sell me theirs?



If you have a look here you can buy the pattern for $3.  That's what I did as I didn't want a whole book either.

OH thank you!  that is exactly what I needed!

Ok, it WAS exactly what I needed but I can't believe I just paid almost $5 for shipping of a PAMPHLET!  Shocked

Got my pattern the other day! I thought the shipping recepit was funny.
