Swirl Dyed MotherMoonPads (reusable cloth menstrual pads)

Ahh, swirl dye. I have such a love/hate relationship with you! Someday soon I will have an awesome dye setup, but for now I dye small amounts of fabric at a time (in my dining room, no less!).



My 5 year old son loved dyeing day! It was his job to spread the shaving cream mixture on the rubbermaid lids.



Of course it was mommy's job to swirl the dye.

I used bamboo jersey (which is a super soft bamboo knit fabric) to dye with. After I was done, I turned them into MotherMoonPads!



Pantyliners


Normal Flow


Heavy and Ultimate pads


Thanks for looking!

Oh, they are NICE! I really enjoyed a sneak peak at the process and especially how your son is involved. Great job!!

Makes me want to find something to swirl dye, my dd would love doing this too!

Wow - Denelle - they turned out AWESOME! I am a little afraid to try swirling, but I should.
GREAT work, again!
