I wish I saw this tute before I stumbled through my attempt to make mama cloth. I think I made it way harder than it needed to be.  Cheesy Definately trying this out. Thanks!

This is very cool. I've never thought about doing this until now. I switched to cloth diapers and cloth nursing pads this last year so I should also switch to cloth pads. Just makes sense!

Great tutorial! I've been meaning to try these for some time now and now that you've posted such an easy to follow tutorial I have no excuse not to! Love the mushroom fabric too!

This may be a silly question.....but how do you all wash these??  I'm thinking you'd want to do it like cloth diapers to keep them absorbant, but I don't know.  Any suggestions would be great....cold water, hot water, extra rinse or whatever.  Thanks!

I just wash them with the towels.  warm/cold and regular detergent/cycle

I wash them with my towels too.... I also rinse them out and  soak them in hydrogenperoxide/water until I stick them in the washer. Have never left them in there longer than a day, so I don't know what would happen if they were soaked longer.

Here's a couple questions.
-How many did you make for yourself? (as in how many should I have on hand for a normal cycle?)
-Do you think I could just use iron on vinyl instead of the other stuff? Or how about a oilcloth like fabric (I have a bunch from ikea) Or should I just get some pul?

Thanks for the tutorial! Every month I think to myself, why I haven't made those things yet! So I think this month I will do it!

normal cycle, I am not..... my second day is horrrrrrrid, and I don't use them.... but on my regular days, I typically use 4 per day.....

Ive never used iron on vinyl, but if you try it I would love to hear how it works!!

I would guess that if you have a layer of something that is water proof it would work.

good luck with the making.....I have found if you do an assembly line rather than making one at a time it works MUCH better!!
