Once you try a cloth menstrual pad, you will never go back to plastic again. Don’t you deserve to wear cloth too?

Pad Template
Inner Pad Template
Place template on the fold of the fabric and line up with the fold line on the template, cut one. Take the same template and cut 2 pieces from the full template. Not on a fold.  Cut about 8 pieces of fabric from the oval template. This number depends on the thickness of the fabric.
Here are all the pieces cut out. My oval pads are 4 layers each. This is thick double napped flannel I’m using.
Serge around the edges of your pads and down the center seam of the 2 separate body pieces. This prevents fraying of the flannel
Take your two separate body pieces and place them over the whole body piece, lining up the edges.  Your two center seams with overlap
Serge around the entire body.
Here’s the body and the two pads.
Add a snap or two and you’re almost done. I say a snap or two because some underwear have different crotch widths. If you add an extra snap you wont have extra wings hanging down from your underwear.
I like to have extra protection so I take a quilted waterproof crib pad and cut one oval liner and serge the edges. Once I did this,
I never ever had a leaking problem.
I put the waterproof pad in last so it’s closest to the underwear. I toss the soiled pads in a  bucket of water on top of my washer to soak. At the end of  my cycle I pour the bucket into the washer and spin out  the water. I then do a regular wash and dry them in the dryer.
