So there are many reasons to use Fabric pads, my reason is mostly waste however there are health reasons as well.

I have been having a blast making these. And love choosing from all my fun fabrics. These also make great stash busters. These are made form an ITH pattern I bought on Etsy and the stitching takes about 5 minutes.
If I run out, either wash some or stitch up a new one, no late night runs to the store, lol.
I soak them in cold water overnight and wash the next day, and there are no stains.
I am super happy with my new life change and a super bonus, my time is shorter with less flow.

Here is my blog with bit more info

Thanks for looking

PS: as for the title, FBC - Fabric Blood Catchers, thats what my hubby called them, do you think it will catch on? lol.

It's a funny name, maybe it will catch on!
Your fabrics are cute, and also funny for this purpose Cheesy.
The FBCs I made were from flannel and pul remnants but I could never get the snaps to set correctly so they are sitting around in my studio unfinished which is very sad. I think about them about once monthly, lol, and wish they were usable.

I bought plastic snaps and a clamp on amazon for cheap. They are awesome. I love putting them on. So easy and nice to use.

Ignorant question, but how does that work?  Is it actually because of the cloth pads?
