I really should have done this with our last foster dog.  We spent so much money on pads while she was here, and she still
peed in random spots all over my house..  Anywho.  I made a special trip out to the Goodwill looking for cotton sheets to layer
up for pads.  Ya know, on the cheap.  It must have been my lucky day, because I came across one of those mattress pads to
add cushion onto a bed.  I got it, and a flannel bed sheet.  The padding was just big enough to make 3 pads just the right size.
Also the flannel sheet I got was enough to cover them all.  I'm so excited about them!  They came out great.  Not perfect,  one
of them has a crooked edge, but they will work perfectly for us.  I got some plastic vinyl at walmart, that will be what protects my
carpet.  I can easily wipe that down and launder the top part and change them out as needed.

Inspiration without application is moot.

I find it awesome when people find cheaper ways of making these pads.

Good job!

Oh! Thank you for posting this! The store-bought ones can be expensive.
