reusable pantiliners?  my mind is exploding with evironmentally goodness!

a tut would be most appreciated, as i tend to use (TMI) a lot of pantiliners.  do you put an absorbant whatsit inbetween the two fabric layers?  and i'm not that good at sewing round either, although i'll have an interesting time explaining this to my mother.

ah, who knew a pad could be so cute, charlie

by the way, i am a girl, just so no one gets too weirded out.

Sooooo how does one wash these cloth pantiliners? Should they be soaked or rinsed and can they be machine washed?

TMI time!!! I like to wear pantiliners almost daily. It absorbs sweat as well as other unwanteds. So yeah if I'm on the go at all... Nobody likes swamp crotch... oh I kid. And I dislike that sometimes the adhesives stick to the fabric of my panties.

I understand the velcro thing BUT does one sew velcro into a certain set of panties (leaving others velcro- free)?

I do like this idea. I hate paying ever rising prices for a product that only pollutes in the end. Plus I can shape them as I like, rather than taking whatever style's on sale.

Wings hold them in place just fine. They snap/button/velcro/whatever around the panties. I just wash mine with the rest of my clothes, nothing special. If you worry about staining, the easy way is to use a fabric that won't show stains! Smiley  Two layers of flannel at a minimum I'd say (just because one layer feels soooo flimsy). Or two layers of flannel with a strip of terry cloth inbetween 'just in case'. Or one layer of flannel and one layer of fleece. If you don't have a sewing machine, you can handsew them - all of mine (about 3 dozen - I got a little carried away...) are handsewn. They take me an hour or so to sew. I've never tried velcro though.

If you're on the go - just bring an extra liner or 2 and a snack size ziplock bag. Fold the used one in half and put in the ziplock bag. Put it in the hamper when you get home (or the next day if you forget like I do Embarrassed ...)

OTOH - if the only reason is to save money, just be sure you can stop making/buying these once you have 'enough' Cheesy Cheesy I mean, you'll start noticing all sorts of cute fabric at the store that you just have to get to make another one or 2 or 3 ....

I am so happy everyone is so comfortable on here. When my mom saw me making the cloth pad she thought it would never work, my sister thinks they'd be uncomfortable, and my friends thinks its gross Tongue. Strangely, my father is the only one who thinks its a cool idea. Why is my dad and I the only one comfortable with the natural process known as menstruation?

*shrugs* I have made some pantiliners, tomorrow I am going to buy some more cotton prints and some PUL, maybe I'll give that hiking cloth thing a try for my overnight pads.

Thanks craftsters!

Unfortunately I need pantiliners on occasion like when I have a cold.  I have looked at the other tutorials and they don't seem to be what I need.   I would love to see a tute for these.
Thanks for saving the froggies.

One that worked for me (as a starting point anyway, I've adjusted it some for size etc) is this one - I used just the 'base' piece - it's the one that looks like a rounded off square. Cut two pieces of flannel, sew them together, sew on some snaps and done. I do them by hand, so I sew them together right sides together leaving a gap, then turn them inside out and sew the gap closed.
