Sewing for Dignity Days

I gathered a few friends and sewers together Saturday morning to sew washable menstrual pads. Cutting was quite the project. We all cut the absorbent fabric, then they all got to work sewing while I continued to cut. I figured if we at least have them all cut out they take just minutes to sew. 

Thank you Rachel! She also had the snap attacher tool so she took home all the finished ones to attach the snaps.  She also took more to sew!! Yay!

 Sharon took all of the thickest ones home to sew on. Then she'll pass them off to Rachel this week to add the snaps. Thank you Sharon! 
Christy cut and sewed, cut and sewed...... Thank you friend!

This is what I brought home to work on after I return from Houston. Then I'll box them all up and send them on their way before Angelika and Rod return to the Ivory Coast on November 24th.

Take care lovely friends!


  1. A group of ladies at our Guild made them last year for women living on the Pacific Islands.

  2. What a great project! I need to get my act together and start sewing again--I haven't sewn a charity project in ages.

  3. Fantastic! What a wonderful project! I know I will never get any sewn before the 24th so I will mail you a check today instead. I'm sure the fabrics are not cheap!

  4. Kudos to you and your friends for your efforts!
