Hope your week is going great! Wanted to take a minute to share my results and input from the Adjustable Absorbency Pads.
I love the way these turned out!
I used flannel again for the outer & inner layers, with the absorbent core made of 2 layers of terry cloth. While these pads do not have the waterproof backing provided by the PUL on the Serged Pads, they will still be a very absorbent, easy to use option.
The finished pads from the template I provided earlier this week are 10" long x 4" wide plus the wrap around wings. I used snaps again, but small pieces of velcro sewn on the wings would work as well.
The pocket opening on the bottom of the pad will allow for additional absorbent layers to be neatly added if needed. This too was an easy to sew cloth pad, and I finished 19 like this. Added to the 21 I made of the serged pad option, that will be a total of 40 pads headed to Cambodia next week! I'm pleased!
Not to mention, that nearly puts us at 20% of our GOAL OF 250 PADS this month!
So, how about you all? Any pad sewing progress to share? If so, I'd love to see, so please leave a link in the comments! If this goal is going to be reached we're going to have to have your help!
And since we know how everyone loves giveaways and prizes, we have more of that planned for those of you that do indeed sew along and help us reach that goal of 250 cloth pads....details to come early next week. :) If you have any questions at all as you are sewing, don't hesitate to give me a shout, I'm more than happy to help any way I can!
Have a great weekend!
