One Thing, One Week Challenge 5

This week Amy of Amy's Creative Side is hosting another One Thing, One Week challenge. This was a short week for me as I was visiting my parents and away from my sewing machine until Saturday, but I was able to use the challenge to motivate me to complete a small, but important WIP. When my son was born I had made myself two pairs of pads for absorbing breast milk leakage using flannel on the inside, fleece on the backside, and a layer of Warm n Natural on the inside. I wanted to try them out before making more to make sure I liked them. Turns out I did like them, but it's two months later and I still hadn't gotten around to making more!

I decided to play around with a couple more different materials. I decided to use the fabric form an old pair of 100% cotton pajama pants that had finally torn beyond use. The cotton is old and worn, and thus very soft, so I thought it'd feel nicer against the sensitive skin. I also wanted to play with the inner absorptive materials. I ended up making one pair with Warm n Natural again, one pair with a pair of disposable breast pads inside, and one pair with a couple of outgrown diapers cut down to size inside.



Not the most glamorous finish, but an important one.  I will be trying them out this week and will be sure to report back which is the most comfortable after wear and washing, or if there was no noticeable difference.  :)

  1. nice finish, and useful as well, when my sister was pregnant with the first of hers she asked me to make some for her, I used 5 or 6 layers of flannel and serged them together, quick and easy but effective, i like the idea of recycling diapers though! will have to try that if the need arrises again :)

  2. Way to sew circuluar things! :) I'm afraid of those curves. Very useful and I'm sure much more comfortable than those throw-away store bought kind. :) Not to mention more earth friendly!

  3. i'm interested to learn how the one with the disposable inside holds up after washing.

    I just bought the washable kind when I needed them. But if I did it again, I'd rather be able to just make some, especially from recycled clothing like that.

    Great idea!

  4. What a clever idea! I used the washable kind when my kids were babies, but I like this idea. I'm going to tuck this away for potential future use. :)
