hi Anic,

i have about 20 pieces of CP now, but ahh..i think i need more :D

i handmade them all, so i guess being creative about the source is the key :) i didn't have the fancy snap buttons or PUL. so far, i survived with my :)

did yours water-proofed? oh and thank you so much for the link on cari forum. appreciate it :)))

I sewn these cloth pads to encourage friends & relatives who are doubtfull of cloth pads, so I water proofed them, don't want them to have bad experience with leaking.

To save PUL material, I have made just a layer of PUL & flannel without wing for friend. It is then used in between of any non water proofed pad & undie, then a user just need to have a couple of these boosters. There is also a simple pocket design that users could just create inserts from material at home. Will post these pictures.

saya baru nk berjinak dgn dunia handmade especially CP n sanggup beli mini sewing machine kat susah juga nk cari bamboo fleece n pul (waterproof fabric) ada idea x utk xchange ngan material dh cuba dgn baby plastic tie-pant tp susah bebenor nk jahit...huhuhu.....tq sis

hi zilozz79, about replacement for bamboo fleece, you could use flannel or towel. for replacement for PUL, i have heard others who use velvet (which I think you can find from shop like kamdar). But there are online sellers for bamboo fleece & PUL and it is not difficult to buy them.

Check out some of the online sellers here:
