Tamarack Creations' Profile

About

Welcome to my shop!

I am a stay-at-home mom of three boys, who likes to sew, scrapbook and garden. I've been sewing since I was 13, which was a REALLY long time ago!

I recently discovered alternative menstrual products—I now use a menstrual cup and reusable cloth pads. My period has never been more fun! Not to imply that my periods are actually fun now …they are still heavy and painful, but using such bright cheery pads does give me something to smile about.

Being frugal as well as creative, I designed and sewed my own pads. I had so much fun making them, that I just kept on buying cute fabric and making more… and so, here I am, hoping to supply you and your friends through my Etsy Shop. Grab a cup of tea and have a look around……

Why Cloth?


Cloth is more cost effective. Upfront cost of about $100 for a sizable stash of cloth pads that will last five years vs. $60-75 per year for disposables—more if you have heavy flow or short, more frequent cycles.

Cloth is more responsible. Your cloth pads will be used over and over again—no more adding to the landfills every month.

Cloth is more healthful. Disposable pads and tampons are bleached, and the by-product of bleaching, dioxin, is very unhealthful

Cloth is way more comfortable! Paper and plastic are no match for the cozy comfort of cloth.

Cloth is more pleasant. A breathable pad virtually eliminates the sweaty, smelly aspect of your period, not to mention that all that putrid garbage that needs to be dealt with.

Cloth is more fun! Why wear plain white paper pads when you can wear colorful, unique pads that make you smile.
