Cloth pad sewing supplies
Depending on the cloth pad pattern your purchase, typically a cloth pad has 3-4 layers. The pad topper – part that touches your skin. The core – absorbency. Pad backing which is often something like windpro fleece or PUL which is water resistant.
Where do you buy these supplies? I have some from various locations. Fabric groups on Facebook for pad toppers in amazing prints, but you can go anywhere including JoAnn Fabrics and Walmart for supplies or even upcycle materials you already have!
