The Homemade Mama Pad Thread

I thought it would be fun to start a mama pad thread! Here is what I just made for a cousin. They are pantyliners, top layer flannel, middle layer Warm 'N Natural, bottom layer anti-pill fleece. They are made from the Pauline's Pad pattern reduced to 74%. My husband wanted me to mention that he cut them out.

Re: The Homemade Mama Pad Thread

I just made my first mama pads last week. I used Adahy's Cloth Pad Patterns. The first one is the 11 inch pad. The second one I adapted the pattern and made a 13 inch pad for post partum.

I think its funny how you can look at something and decide if you like it or not based on shape, etc. I do that with dipes

Re: The Homemade Mama Pad Thread

Those all look great! It makes me want to make myself some nice ones for post partem. I have really bad seconds or all my trials from when I was first working on my patterns. Yours are pretty! And I think I may have finally found the velour love...

Great job ladies!

Great pads mama! Do these pads stay in place pretty well? I have some Clovers and thought about making my own b/c the clovers slide all over the place...

These pads stay in place great. I think the key to pads staying in place is to make sure the part that snaps around the underwear is nice and snug. The narrowest point on these pads is about 2 3/4 inches.

Re: The Homemade Mama Pad Thread

Oooh fun! I'll be back with pics!

Okay...I just started making MC about a week or so ago so I tried different patterns, different things, different ways of constructing etc. So some of my first attempts aren't very purty but they're functional!

I like adahy's pantyliner pattern and will probably stick with that.


Pantyliners. One or two has pul, one fleece, one obv, some flannel, etc.


And here are my pad experiments. Don't look too close.


And this is my favorite pad pattern so far. I construct it with a middle layer of pul so I don't have to sew the soaker directly under the backside of the top layer. My stitching isn't pretty enough yet for me to do it blind. I have to see what I'm doing....


The ones I've made so far. I have to dye the rest of my obv so I can finish them and have a whole stash. I love making these ones!

I actually posted a tutorial on the last ones with a link to the free pattern in Craft Chat if you'd like to check it out!
