I had been curious about the menstrual cloth pads forever!  I was about to start using them, but I found out I was pregnant...  So, I missed the initial opportunity to use them.  Now, my body is getting back to the normal cycle and I made myself some more of menstrual cloth pads.  the polka dots fabric is a leftover from making baby blankets for my daughter, and there are a few layers of cotton, which comes from my doughters cloth diaper that she grew out of, and a layer of waterproof fabric that is still breathable.  They are so comfortable and easy to use.  NO MORE maxipads and tampons!!! 

They are eco-firendly in both ways - they are made out of recycled materials, and they will not produce any garbage that goes to the landfills!!


I'd love to own a YUDU!  I am a printmaker, but I don't have a studio space, nor have money to set up my own printmaking studio.  All the equipments are so expensive!!  For that reason, I have not been able to print anything new since I moved from oregon where I had access to a printmaking studio... :(  I also make clothes, so it will be a nice accent if I could start printing on the garments I make.  I'd love to be able to print at home whenever I can find a little bit of 'me-time' in between taking care of my three month old :)

I always used cotton fabric scraps. sometimes my fillers would be old worn out wash clothes. I had some with snaps to fit around the panties and then some of those had elastics at either end to hold an extra layer for heavier days. i washed these in hot water most of the time and added oxy clean. I would recomend these money savers to anyone.

Tampons and pads are so expensive this is one way to to certainly save a lot of money. Good for you girl. I think your idea is tops, and executed superbly. I'd give you a 10 for sure.
