During a recent visit to dollarama I noticed some hanging dryers with clips and I immediately thought that these would be great for hang drying my pads.
This hanging dryer can be used to dry cloth pads both indoors during winter or when raining, etc, or outdoors in the sun.
My search for absorbent fabrics for the core of my handmade cloth menstrual pads led me to a wonderful textile store, Wazoodle. Wazoodle.com is a huge online retailer, based in New Jersey, USA, and they sell all diaper making (or non diaper making) fabrics and supplies, like
I immediately placed an order for a super absorbent fabric called Zorb that they sell. I now will be using zorb as the absorbent core for all my cloth menstrual pads.
What is Zorb?
Zorb contains only tangled cellulose fibers from bamboo/cotton/viscose and poly micro fiber, the same fibers found in virtually every AIO diaper on the market – nothing else. These non-allergenic fibers are non-allergenic, durable and easy to sanitize. Zorb absorbs 10x its weight in less than half a second — that’s 20x faster than cotton, bamboo or hemp. Zorb has incredible holding power too, a single layer holds up to 3 times the moisture of the best absorbing knits. It is extremely fast at moving moisture around.
I am super excited about using zorb as my new absorbant layer for all my handmade cloth mentrual pads. I have tried and tested the material it seems to me a ‘miracle absorbant cloth’, and I thank the poeple at wazoodle for making it!
Please visit them and show them some love!

I love working diaper bags. A few days back I made this gorgeous diaper bag with ruffles on the front: a double ruffle in the center and a single ruffle on either side of it on the front of the bag, with pockets and lots of room for storage.
I am very happy with how the bag turned out.
— 100% cotton fabric used throughout
— double or triple stitched throughout to make it very sturdy, and fully interfaced for added structure, yet lightweight
— adjustable messenger strap with high quality metal hardware, for across your body or over your shoulder wear
— padded strap for comfort
— YKK zipper top closure
— total of 9 generous fully lined pockets: 4 exterior pockets (2 of which are elasticized for larger bottles); 1 YKK zipper pocket in flap; 4 generous interior pockets (all elastic)
— magnetic snap closure assures the flap stays in place
— snap strap to attach your keys
— bag opens wide for easy access to all your items inside
— approximate dimensions: 13.25” wide x 11.25 ” tall x 5.5″ deep
I think I am now addicted to making diaper bags. And I am planning on making more diaper bags and stocking my etsy shop with some ready to ship bags in the coming months. Stay tuned!
