Cloth Menstrual Pads

So, kind of a weird subject. But yes, disposable pads and tampons are really bad for the earth, and some argue, bad for womens' bodies.
Recently, a friend asked me if I could try to make her some cloth pads. I got this pattern from NikkiShell, who is an awesome seamstress and mom.
My prototype turned out okay. However, after seeing some pretty beautiful pads on Etsy by this mama, and I think I might skip the whole "insert" thing.

I have a week until I start school. I kind of feel that nesting sensation, like before having a baby. I think it's because I know that life as we know it is going to change completely. But the good thing is, in mid-May, I'll be back to full-time stay-at-home-mom probably.

Nothing else to really write. OH-I am loving the new diapers I made last week. They are incredible. So much so that I don't want to use plain prefolds anymore. I want a whole stash of nice fitted diapers. I think I will make them "cuter" next time though.Folded up
