I finally made myself some pads!


The pads with the ric-rac are copied off Lunapads (www.lunapads.com) because I like the idea of changing just the top part, instead of the whole pad... also because they're so pretty!


i too wanted to rip off the luna pads design, but couldn't get it right. could i maybe use your pattern? are you willing to share?

I don't think I'm allowed to post publicly how I made them, due to copyright and stuff, but PM me and I'll let you know.

Honestly, when I first heard of these, there was NO way I was going to use them. But as I continue to have leakage and irritation issues, I'm becoming a convert. I hope to sew my first one this weekend.

One set completed. I thought I'd try out one set of super-duper ultra long overnights (since I need them today and tonight), and if they work out, I'll make more.


The orange isn't quite that neon/radioactive, but there is no sun here, so this is the best I can do. I ADORE the color combo! I pretty much followed the tutorial, but made it longer for nighttime, and added the rickrac on the ends to hold the inserts. I didn't have to go out and get new flannel, since I have a basket full of it from Christmas projects, but I fell in love with the citrus fabric.

When I told my husband what I was doing, his first reaction was "ew, gross!" But he really will support anything that makes me happy (when it comes to my body and my period, I'm in charge (otherwise it's a partnership), but it makes it easier if you don't have to explain stuff all the time or defend your ideas). I'm sure he'll realize this may mean he'll never have to go to the drugstore on an emergency pad run again.

I dont know...I think I might stick to the throw away kind. Call me a bastard, but I like the throwing it away and forgetting about it bit.  They are fun colored though.   Undecided

Swapping to cloth pads is one of the best decisions Ive ever made.. dont dismiss it easily as an option.

It rocks, and is so simple. (Definately simpler than remembering, omg I forgot to buy pads/tampons).

I didn't think i would like them, but do!  Try it - you can always throw them out after, same as the others, if you don't like them.

I'm going to keep suggesting you guys make ones integral to underwear, too.  they're 10,000x better.  take some old crappy unders and sew a pad inside, if you don't feel up to making underwear from scratch.
