charity pads for http://empowerwomeninafrica.com
I made a big pile of them, folded pads and bases and inserts like this
the base and insert on the left is made from jersey, pul and cotton fleece, it gets 2 more inserts, the one in the middle is synthetic fleece backed with PUL and with ribbons (quick wash and dry!) and a velour insert, it gets 2 more too, the one on the right is a folder pad with a pul strip, flannel and cotton diapering fabric that i tried this month myself ( the type of fabric not this pad hi hi ) and it is cool, soft and absorbent so I made a lot of the inserts with it. It also dries really fast, I made the inserts 3 layers thick, so 9 when folded. Does the job for me and I bleed a lot as you all know.
the pile, that is 33 pads, about 20 with 3 inserts each. now I'll let you see what I intend to stuff them in
I'll be vacuum packing them in plastic and tape and asquashing them in there, watch this space!
hugs all round!
