folding pads for goods4girls x-posted my journal

As promised, templates and tut for the folding pad

cut 2 of each, the pad top with seam allowance, the folding part without

turn and topstitch the top part, zig-zag or serge around the folding part
cut a piece of waterproof material as shown, here I use pro-care, other things may be used

stitch it to the folding part
place the top part on the folding part off center with one wing on the edge of the folding part away from the waterproofing

sew the top to the folding part where the pins are on both sides
flip it over and fold the part without waterproofing to the middle

then the other side

apply snaps as usual :D
extra layers can be tucked inside  the folding part if the girl needs more layers.

these go together really quickly and worked really well for myself and a friend about 10+ years ago before I got picky and wanted hourglass shaped pads.
I hope this helps the girls!
please use this pattern for personal use or charity only, selling pads made like this at a discounted rate to send to goodsforgirls counts as charity :D
