|Saying "Bye, bye" to these in the name of self-sufficiency|
I did a ton of research. I had no idea there was such a wide variety of cloth pads that are out there! There are a multitude of different patterns, materials, etc. Here are a sprinkling of the items I found:
Basic cloth pad with removable liner - I seriously considered making this one. I still might try it.
Hillbilly Housewife's pattern - Similar to the first one. Thanks to Lee for suggesting this. If you haven't explored the Hillbilly Housewife website, you should. Lots of great info and ideas there.
Circle Pad - This one perplexed me. I'm sure it's not that complicated, but it seemed like it to me.

In the end, I found the cloth pad tutorial by Feminine Essence to be the most helpful. There are pictures of every step and complete instructions. She truly, as a dear friend of mine used to say, "breaks it down for the slow folk".
Keep your fingers crossed that I get this to work out!
