Step 1: Gather Materials Discover how to repurpose old towels and find small cotton flannel swatches for this project. You can utilize various cotton fabrics, such as old cotton shirts, cotton jerseys, cotton bed sheets, and more.
Step 2: Download and Prepare the Pattern To create your own cloth pads, you'll need a pattern to guide you. Please download the free pattern provided below.
Once you have the pattern, proceed with cutting the top and bottom parts of the pad, as well as the core liner.
Cut two layers of printed cotton flannel for the top and bottom, along with one layer of lining or waterproof fabric if preferred.
Cut two layers of printed cotton flannel for the core. Remember, the number of core layers can vary based on your desired thickness and absorbency. "I cut one layer of old towel as it is pretty thick."
Step 3: Sewing the Core on the Top Part of the Pad Now, let's move on to sewing the top part of the pads.
Place the core layers on top of the top part of the pad and sew along the line to hold them together. "Check the placement using our pattern."
Place the top and bottom parts face to face and sew them together, leaving the bottom open for turning the pad inside out later. Make sure to secure your stitches at the beginning and end.
Step 4: Flipping the Pad Inside Out After sewing, carefully flip the pad inside out through the bottom opening. Use your fingers to press the edges and achieve a neater appearance.
Step 5: Top Stitching the Pad To ensure the seam allowance stays in place and to close the bottom opening, we'll perform a top stitch along the edge of the pad. This should be done with a 1/8" seam allowance.
By following these simple steps, you can create your own eco-friendly and comfortable cloth pantyliners using materials you already have at home. Not only will you contribute to reducing waste and saving money, but you'll also enjoy the satisfaction of crafting something practical and sustainable.
Imagine the freedom of never having to rely on disposable pantyliners again. With your DIY cloth pads, you'll experience the comfort and peace of mind that comes from using reusable, gentle materials. Plus, you can customize the thickness and absorbency to suit your needs.
