    they come in 3 sizes and the largest one has an inner linner so it works for incontinence as well as heavy flows.

    wish me luck in getting buyers for them!

    oooooh nice! I got cloth pads when I was 17 and haven't looked back since! However, I'm now 24 and they are starting to show their age [​IMG] so I might be needing some more one of these days, and while I can sew, I really don't have the patience for it.

    By the way, I discovered "alternate" feminine protection on another forum, and my original pads were purchased from a forum-member there. I don't foresee any problems finding buyers [​IMG]

    It's not that bad really, just rinse them out good and throw them in the wash. They ARE pretty, but I don't mind if they get a little stained. I was them with other stuff, no biggie.
    I could see myself doing cloth diapers too, if I ever had kids, however poo diapers must have their own load [​IMG]

    I think they would probably be much more comfortable than regular pads. Thankfully I don't have to worry about this kind of stuff right now! good luck with sales [​IMG]

    I've had the pattern printed off for a year and keep meaning to make them for myself. From all I've read they are way more comfy, and I'm all for that.
