I love it! The fabric is so pretty and it's so functional! All of my cloth pads are off white since that is what I had on hand and I have been using them for more than a year and they look pretty much as they did when I made them. I love the cloth pads and I feel so powerful having control over my menses Grin. I am still pleased that I don't have to buy those stupid pads every month!!! What a waste!

The wet bag is to keep in my purse so I can put used pads in the waterproof part and keep clean pads in the outer pockets. I keep a cotton ball in there with essential oils on it to fight any odors.

i was trying to make a wetbag, in which i could store a few clean pads and put the dirty ones in. i never got it done. that's why, when visiting someone or something like that, i use store-bought pads... bad me, and the money i spend... this is nice, you gave me an idea how to finish my wetbag, i already have the PUL sewn. so thanks for sharing! Smiley

i made three new pads today with a new pattern and love love love them. unfortunately my cam died so no pics yet Sad

ADDITION 15.10.2008:
So my camera kinda works. It says that I should change batteries, even though I just did... ANNOYING. But here's a pic! Note: I like those "square ones", because they're easier to sew and a lot easier to put through the serger. I'm not very good at sewing (or serging!!) shapes. Straight lines are sooooo much easier...

Good job Smiley I love the outer fabric. Patterns definetely work better to hide stains!

I made another one slightly different in a pocket-style where you can add inserts into the pad. It didn't turn out so well but when I have time to make another one I'll post pics.

Yes, I made a couple of those as well, they're HUGE, so super for overnight! but not what I want to deal with on a daily basis.

I also use a diva cup, but at night it leaks Sad so not sure if its me or what?!?!? but I'm tired of the mess, so these huge pads with inserts should keep things cleaner Smiley

I should make a wet bag too, on my ever-growing list of things to do!

I have one of those too Smiley Currently working on: 381 choir robes, 2 baby slings, 1 painting for a golf tournament raffle, and loads of small baby items for a craft show. All of which needs to get done before the end of the month. Next month will be Christmas presents... Yowza.
