Some pics of pads I've made

Here is sampling of the pads I made recently. I have more on ebay. Yes, I am the "ebay lunapad copy lady" Yikes! They are modified from lunapads, as you can see. Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my pads. I also invite kind critiques! :)

Tell me what you think...

Hello, friends! Wow, this LiveJournal thing is totally new and foreign to me! I have never done anything like this before--I am a very private person, so this is really a stretch. I hope you will be forgiving as I muddle through my learning curve here.

I have just started making cloth menstrual pads. I made about a dozen to try out for myself (I am a new convert to cloth and the menstrual cup), and I had so much fun making my own, that I decided this might be a viable work-at-home option for me!

About the pads:
I chose a holder-with-interchangeable-insert design after seeing the Lunapads online. I do not use PUL. I use 'ripstop nylon' as a resistant barrier. It is lightweight and breathable. I find having a more breathable pad cuts way down on the sweaty/smelly aspect, which is the main reason hated pads so much in the past.

I use pads like these myself. I do use a menstrual cup for my heavy days, but I have never bled all the way through one of the insert pads on my med/light days. (I do like to change several times a day.) I find that the 100% cotton flannel is extremely absorbent, and the more it is washed the more absorbent it gets.

While I am new at making cloth pads, I have been sewing most of my own clothes for 25 years, so I am an experienced seamstress.

I would feel confident trying to sew any type of pad. This is a new venture for me--I am currently working on some all-in-one pads with wings (still in the 'tweaking' stage), and pantiliners. I'm playing it by ear at this point! :)

Any ideas or suggestions are more than welcome!
