Hello! I've started my pads! I have one question though. When I used to watch my mom sew a long time ago, she used to cut little dart things on the curves before she turned whatever she was working on. She said it was so the fabric wouldn't bunch up when you turn it inside out. Well, do you need to do that for this or not? I've read pretty much the whole thread and I dont think I read anything about this. Sorry if its a stupid question Smiley

Plus, you can sew them by hand, from thrift store items or "abandoned" clothes:

Old T-shirts make great top layers
Old towels make great inserts for heavy flow pads (I used some Kool-aid-stained white towels)
100% cotton flannel - shirts, baby blankets or sheets & pillowcases are good for any part of a pad

You can get any of the above at a thrift store, for a couple of bucks, or the rag bag at your house for nothing. Just wash everything well and dry it before you start working with it. Several people have talked about stitching it all by hand.

So, they won't have the bright and fancy patterns right away, but if you really want them, you can do it.

Good point! They really don't have to be pretty. And if you do sew by hand try using embroidery thread, it is easy to work with and will be less likely to cause you problems! You could ask for them for your birthday too!

I might actually try this! I need a new project anyway Smiley. There are some washcloths I know my sister won"t miss so I already have something I need. I'll look around the house to see what I can find...

verycrafty, you can always buy premade ones.

They are so expensive and I am so poor Roll Eyes I get disposable ones free now so maybe sometime in the future. Besides I dont know how my sister will react if I ask her to buy me some! Cheesy (my sister is my primary caregiver just so you know Wink)

I like the lunapads ones though. They are pretty but not nerly as nice as the ones I've seen here  Smiley

These seem cool!  I want to try them but I cant sew. Sad 

298  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: The Ugliest Thing I Ever Made on: March 02, 2006 11:01:28 PM
Ok, here goes....I made this skating dress out of scraps of fabric, some glitter paint. Put it up on e-bay for no kidding....99 cents and it sold for over $80.00!!! I felt so bad, I sent the winning buyer a check for $50.00 with the dress. Can't believe what others think is nice!!  UUUGGGHHHHH!!!!!

If that is a dud then I would hate to see something that wasn't! Shocked I'd die from the absolute gorgeous-ness of it! Tongue It looks really nice! And its hand made! Exactly how do you think you went wrong with it? Huh And besides, I've always thought that handmade items are specialer with mistake in them Smiley

PS if you have another dud can you send it to me?? Grin
