The 'Close to Commercial' pad pattern set includes 3 different patterns with varying lengths, widths, gussets and shapes. It's the PERFECT set for beginners to determine the shape, width and length you prefer, and IDEAL pattern shapes for those new to sewing.
Like all Cranky Poodle patterns, comprehensive photo instructions are included with the pattern purchase, and I've created a Facebook group for extra support, plus a video tutorial on my YouTube channel - details below!
The Close to Commercial set includesthe following: 1 x 2 inch snapped width, 6 inch length and 3 inch gusset pattern 1 x 2.5 inch snapped width, 8 inch length, 3 inch gusset pattern 1 x 3 inch snapped width, 10 inch length, 4 inch gusset pattern
One pattern is a rounded, one rectangular, and another with extra coverage for the front and back - just like the pictures in the thumbnail!
Snapped width refers to the width of the pad. Gusset refers to the length of the centre of the pad before the pattern flares out. I have included that measurement in order to help decide whether or not the pad set is good for you :)
I've created this pattern set specifically for people new to cloth pads with the aim of helping familiarise yourself with a few different shapes, lengths and widths. If you're brand new to sewing your own cloth pads you might like to start by upcycling or repurposing fabrics from around your home - flannelette pyjamas, baby blankets, towels etc. These patterns are perfect for your first upcycled pads, but they're also great for fancy new pads too - the choice is yours! AND I'm so keen to spread the cloth pad love that I'm selling this set at an economical price of just $5.00.
These lengths and widths are the most similar to commercial disposable pads available on the Australian market. By keeping the size similar, I aim to ease the transition from disposable to cloth pads and keep spreading the cloth pad love. You'll be a 'paddict' before you know it!
