Make your own cloth pads using fabrics from Noonee Wilga - select outer fabrics, waterproofing and absorbent core.
Each fabric cut in the kit is sufficient to make four pads: one pad each in the 19cm, 25cm, 28cm and 33cm sizes of the Noonee Wilga pattern. Alternatively you can cut 2 x 25cm and 2 x 28cm pads. Noonee Wilga pattern is sold separately. If you are using other patterns, then the numbers and sizes of pads from each cut may differ from this.
This kit contains the fabrics (pattern NOT included) to make four cloth pads of the Noonee Wilga amphora style (1 x 19cm, 1 x 25xm, 1 x 28cm, 1 x 33cm) with black cotton drill backing, hidden PUL for waterproofing, pre-cut hemp for absorbency and your choice of ocean crush minkee or bamboo velour (mint, baby blue or candy pink) top fabric. You will need your own thread, scissors, sewing machine (or hand sew), patterns and fasteners. For fasteners (not included), you can use buttons, press-studs, hook loop tape, safety pins or hammer on studs. Alternatively you can buy a pair of snap pliers and polyacetal resin snaps; or send your pads to me including a self-addressed packet and I will apply the resin snaps and return pads to you.
Amphora pads have wide wings that snap around the crotch of your underwear to reduce leakage onto clothing and to keep the pads in place without sliding.
The most popular pad lengths are:
19cm - light flow, midcycle
25cm - light-moderate day, light night
28cm - moderate-heavy day, moderate night
33cm - heavy day, heavy night
