Save a fortune! Sew your own washable feminine hygiene pads. Use old trifold diapers for inside layers, add layer of waterproof under the outer layer from old baby waterproof pads, and use flannel for outside like the expensive ones you order. Finish with a snap on wings or a button/buttonhole.
UPDATE: Everyone has been repinning, so I thought an extra note is necessary. I added to this, I added natural cotton quilt batting inside of the pad area, I have a heavy flow some weeks and it was VERY needed. Happy sewing!
Moonpads - that's what we called them years ago. Here's how to make your own. There are many good reasons for this: Mama Earth and the sacredness of your moon blood. The water you use to soak the pads, after use, is very good for your plants! Your essence back to the earth.
