If you want to waterproof them you can purchase PUL online, they use it in MCN (modern cloth nappies)

News Flash!! I just made some, but I totally changed the design. Sorry, I didn't take a pic. I just shaped them like an overnighter with wings. They have a 1/2" thin strip of velcro, with the scratchy side towards the panty.
The other way IS scratchy. I really didn't feel like running to the store, so I made them instead. All I had here was a supply of mini pads. Not good enough for 2 days of ... you know.
As for lining, I made them with a layer of soft PVC material. It happens that we used to sell helium balloons, and I had saved a scrap of one that punctured, to test paint on, or whatever. Just imagine a thick piece of balloon "rubber". Then I sewed a layer of terry towel in it, the wings were 2 separate pieces that were sewn in the seams on each side. The whole thing was turned, and stitched. I found that for heavy days, I still needed the mini pads to back it up.
 Living with my elderly mother, she said," Why don't you just send your daughter to the store? And I said, why waste $$$$ I need for something else? " So there you have it... I'm not sure a man would get it... 
And, they survived the washer and dryer~!

I love this idea!  And the button feature would reduce the wear and tear on panties you get from yanking off the adhesive ones.
