I've read about 12 pages into this thread, and I'm strongly tempted to convert.  I'm currently a disposable tampon user, but I feel bad about flushing them down the toilet to God-knows-where, only to wind up in some waste processing plant that throws them into a landfill anyway.  Disposable pads itch sometimes, and they almost always leak!  A few (about 50  Grin)  pages back, someone mentioned sea sponge tampons.  How do those work?

What's also really great for tampon users is the Keeper or Diva Cup.  google either one, they're the best... you can't make 'em though, so sorry if i'm filling up this thread w/ non-craftster stuff.  but the Keeper does come with a fantastic little drawstring bag that I lost and so I made a new one for myself... there's a crafty element!  Smiley

Today I came across this site: http://www.goods4girls.org

and thought how awesome it is and how awesome this thread is and how awesome you all are, and so I had to share.

Hahhahahhaa! Me too! I got my wheel exactly 2 weeks ago and all I do is spin!!!! I dream about spinning! Seriously!
I digress....

So, I still use the pad I got from you and I still use the crocheted tampons and strongly encourage EVERYONE to get their hands on some cloth/reusable pads of their own!!!

I have an umbrella that has bitten the dust as far as umbrellas go; however, the fabric is still good.  Do you think it would work as a waterproof lining for cloth pads?

jennyleigh: I don't see why not.  I have an old umbrella, too, and I was also considering using mine for the same purpose.  The pads I made, though, just use polar fleece as a water resistant backing.  It is a bit thick, though.

you know what makes a super great moisture barrier??? WOOL! You could knit/crochet (or recycle a sweater) into a barrier layer with natural wool. I know people make diaper covers with wool and they work great! You can add lanolin to the wool for more protection too. I figure if it can keep baby pee from leaking, it could keep my flow from leaking!

I know it's a mental thing on my part, but wool sounds so hot and itchy -- especially "there."   Roll Eyes
