My new design

I want to show off my new design here but it’s really a Rumpbox pad design by TheDIYchick. These are 10″ pads and I will be making some 12-13 inches, Slidell wider ones for overnight use. They are so cute and remind me of little angel pads lol

New pad shape and second try on breast pad

I have drawn up a new pad shape and is trying this out so my pad swap partner. I am also making several of this for my friend’s moon box that I have been putting together. I like it, easier to sew and faster.  

   Now the breast pad is a different story… My sewing machine was giving me bad attitude when I was using the overlock stitch to fake serge the edge. I don’t know about giving this to my friend as a gift:/ not cool.

Avengers assemble!

My new addiction out of many others has been sewing cloth menstrual pads. I have sewn many and still not enough for my cycle without washing… So I’m going to “just keep sewing, just keep sewing!”.  I have made an avenger baby blanket for a friend, with the left over fabric, I made some menstrual pads using rocket bottom patterns. These are good for regular flow days. Avengers assemble!  

 
The green Minky one is the only Minky top I have made , still got to try it out myself.  I must say I’m getting better and better at this. 🙂 I have also created some tags for my etsy store. The avengers are going to hit etsy soon.  What do you all think about reusable menstrual pads? Would you give it a try??

TheDIYchick etsy store

Finally I have put my thoughts into actions and started listing items on my etsy store for sale. Since sewing is really a hobbie, not my full time job. I am adding finished items as they are made. I’m also going to enable the custom order option just to see if people would send in request. 

I also recently added some new fabrics in my inventory – flannel, cotton, Minky. These are just so adorable I cannot wait to work on them.  

If you are reading this blog, swing by my etsy store and check things out! I have just listed a new bibdana and burp cloth set on there too. It’s so cute I made two! And patterns already drawn on more fabric for more stuff to come! Cloth pads, bibs, burp cloths and more! Here’s a pic of my newly finished item. Love it !
