My new design

I’m very proud to announce that I have created a new pad shape and I have just put it to the test on my heavy bloody day….. It’s a 2-3 piece pattern, not my favorite to make but my current favorite to look at cause it’s quite cute. It reminds me of a little angle 🙂 now these are only 10″. I have actually made couple of 8″ liners with the same design a while back but let’s just now show those pics cause I tried to do fake serge look and I didn’t like it. Anyhow, here are how they look and I’m going to make some overnight ones to try… Hopefully for my next period. I’m also going to start offering this pad for purchase…. Very soon.

New pad shape 

So I have been participating in a pad swap group and I have created a new pad shape , trying this out with my swap partner. I’m also going to try offering this shape in starter sets. I do like this shape, sewing is a little bit faster since there’s no curve and less prone to mistake. However I have got mixed reviews on the shape, some people like it some people like the curves… I’m only thinking this may work on sets because the starter set will be slightly cheaper and therefore I must make them faster not to discount the stitching work on it at all.  

 What do you all think? The above pads are 12″ moderates that I made for the swap. First time using this new pattern. I like them but again…. I like almost anything I made by myself lol.

Geeky nerdy pad is my thing

Finally took pictures of most of my fabric stash and posted on my Facebook group. Someone wanted two 13″ moderate pads made and I must say I love these. I should really make something for myself with some of my nerdy geeky fabrics…. But I already have so many pads…. I feel like this pad thing is like shoes. You must have many and still feel that it’s not enough lol

The fox pad 

I had made several straight flare pattern pads with this fabric and then it was buried in my pile of fabrics. Did some organizing and pulled this fabric out. I forgot how cute it was. Thru my Facebook group someone wanted a 12″ heavy made from this fabric so there we go. My 12″ assymetrical flare pattern. Stitching is way better than the ones I made out of this print before, my sewing will only get better from here and thanks to the support of cloth pad lovers who helped to keep me busy and my skill improving.

Preparing for Valentine themed pads

This is what I have been working on. 4 different Valentine prints. It’s been a busy week with work and weekend with family and friends and it was not easy to squeeze in some sewing time but I did some sewing and proud to show you guys some progress pics. I do plan to adjust the pattern a little bit for new ones I will be making since these ones are extra flare and visually they look kind of wide. However I made a patchwork pad with the same pattern and used it myself and it felt fine and great with the flare coverage. What do you think of the pattern and the prints??

  Obviously they still need to be worked on. The turning flap needs to be closed and top stitched plus snaps. I am quite happy with how they all turned out especially with the wavy decoration stitch used for attaching the core. Well off to bed and will continue tomorrow…

Never make just one 

Whenever I get my head into making pads, always make several at a time. With an assembly line, one night for pattern drawing and fabric cutting, one night for core sewing, one night for attaching core, and one night for stitch- turn- top stitch and snaps. This is the life of a working mom with a full time job and many hobbies which sewing is one…. Here are 7 cores I just finished sewing, cutting and then zigzagging the edges to keep it thin and flat. I cannot wait to finish this project but it’s really late. To be continued tomorrow….
