Reusable Sanitary Pad, Coffin with Bat Wings – Gothic
Reusable sanitary pads for light bladder leakage or that time of the month ;(
I make these up, as ordered, so please allow a couple of days to get them made for you.
These pads are made from layers of: Suedecloth or cotton against the body, bamboo for absorption, PUL for waterproofing, then a pretty layer of cotton or cotton lycra for “grip” on undies.
There are plastic snaps to hold the wings closed around your undies. The large size has 2 snaps for adjusting, and the medium size has 1.
These are embroidered (where applicable), hand cut, assembled and sewn by me!
Regular – 24cm high, 7cm wide where it folds around undies, 7.5cm wide at widest points of coffin, 18.5cm wingtip to wingtip
Large – 30cm high, 9.5cm wide where it folds around undies, 10cm wide at widest points of coffin, 23.5cm wingtip to wingtip
I can stitch these in many other fabric options, most fabrics on hand are gothic/dark inspired (or bright, because sometimes things just need some bright fabric). If you have a particular want/need, message me to see if I have something available, or can source. Customisations are free.
I currently have Medium or Large sizes. I am happy to tweak my pattern for other sizes if there is a need.
I currently have 2 absorption options, I can also tweak these if there is a need. Regular has 2 layers of 340gsm bamboo. Super has 4 layers of 340gsm bamboo.
Please feel free to message me with any questions or requests.

I am using bamboo as the absorption layers because it has natural breathability, it is anti-bacterial, and very absorbent.
Cotton or cotton lycra for it's breathability, cool against the skin, and soft to touch. Also comes in some wicked prints!
Bamboo gains absorption after a couple of washes, so you may want to toss in the washer a few times before use.
Washing Cloth Pads can be as easy as tossing them in the washing machine, no disinfectants or special routines are needed. If you do have stains, you can try stain removers or use darker coloured pads that hide stains better. I have always found Peroxide works wonders removing blood, available from the chemist. You put it on the stain, it usually bubbles up, leave it a few minutes then wash off.
Store them in a wetbag (working on some options for these at the moment) if you are out and about, or at home. Or a covered bin in the bathroom or laundry, then wash with your normal washing load. Can be dried on the line, or clothes dryer (don't use fabric conditioners or dryer sheets as they make them lose absorbency). I would not use water or heat above 60deg as the PUL may be compromised.
They really don't have to be a lot of trouble and time. And, seriously, I do not care about stains, as who is going to see them except me?!?!
Please choose carefully before purchase as I CANNOT accept returns on sanitary pad items for hygiene reasons.
