bleeding beauty

There is just far too much waste in this world and I cannot bear to contribute when I know that there are alternatives.  That's where this little guy came along.



Here is the tutorial for this menstrual pad.  It's a quick and easy project, and as it happens, is 100% useful! The only thing that I did differently was use cotton batting instead of terry cloth, and I only used two layers of the batting instead of the four layers.  Oh, and I also put a layer of waterproof nylon on the bottom of the two layers of batting for extra protection.

Weird enough as it is to say this, I look forward to the full moon next month so I can use my new pads!

How wonderful for you to be making these!

Thank you! Yes, I couldn't agree more! I'm not sure what took me so long to get started!

Hey! I want some: I'll take 5, please! :) Just lightweight ones I can wear in case my cup leaks! ;)

And you know what else - you could attach the liner to the winged pad with velcro or something like that so you could just have 5 liners and one winged pad and switch them out instead of the whole shebang.

That's a good idea about the interchangeable lining...I have a leak problem sometimes though. Haha. Oh, and they're $4 apiece for just liners, and $10 for a regular pad. Next up is overnighters!
