I would like to try these but my worry is sewing through all of those layers -- has any one had any trouble sewing these on their sewing machines?

Thanks!



I did  Huh

My machine didn't like it at all. The bobbin thread kept bunching up and it was making an AWFUL sound? I stopped right away. I still wanna make some, but now I am afraid for my machine.

I'm sure it's up somewhere, but I'll ask anyway: Is there a template?  Huh I'm in need of sleep pads. I have a stash of 18 various pads for the day time ( because I was having a little too much fun making matching sets and experimenting with the designs ).

On another note, I was at Meijer tonight, grocery shopping, and decided to bop on over to the baby section, and what do I find? The very same baby changing material you brought up earlier. YAY! I went looking there for it a month ago, but couldn't find it because our Meijer was sold out. ( Did you buy them all?  Angry .... Wink ) .... ( I'm tired, it's 3 in the morning, forgive me if I'm a little incoherent, I really hope this post makes sense ).

Just a thought.....when you cloth nappy, you can use fleece as a 'stay dry' liner. Would the same work with these pads perhaps? Use Microfleece as a top layer?

Ok, I went to the fair state fair last year and watched a promo for these super shammy things. They  sucked up, like, a whole can of soda in a couple seconds. I bought some, they are great for cleaning, but how 'bout for pads?? New ones, of course, nothing that had chemicals on it. They are said to absorb 20x their own weight and they recommend using them like a towel "for you or your pet". haha. Machine wash, too.

Here's a link:

I went home after the fair and did a mini demo for my mom. ha.

These are great. I am seriously considering making myself some because the storebought ones are just so uncomfortable, dont cover the right areas and they CHAFE! Flannel would be so much better. Smiley And Ive been wanting to buy some new towels . . .

At first my cotton thread kept breaking, but switching to polyester thread solved the problem.

I haven't read through this entire thread as I don't have time to read 10 pages LOL

I was wondering - do you have the dimensions posted anywhere?

I am making some mamacloth for a friend and myself.  My friend has extremely heavy flow the first 2 days and I've been looking for something like this for her first few days. 

so anyway - would you mind sharing dimensions on these please.
