About

Have a Healthy more Organic Eco Friendly Cycle!!

Welcome! My name is Christy and I own and operate CreationsByFive. We rent a small home on a farm in the hills of Missouri. I have been sewing for 5 years and starting out by learning to sew cloth menstrual pads for myself and my daughters.
I am a wife and mom of 3 children. I am a homeschooling mom of 2 now, since my oldest daughter graduated this year (2017). I have a home business sewing reusable cloth menstrual pads and other items for a healthy home. CreationsByFive was created in 2012 to find a better solution for my youngest daughter during her cycles. When she was a baby and wearing disposable diapers I tried all the brands trying find a solution to her horrible diaper rashes. I did not know 16 years ago, that her skin was sensitive to the chemicals in disposables. I did the best I could using the knowledge from our local pharmacist to get us through those years. Years later when she started her cycle, this nightmare started all over again, only worse! She could hardly walk after her cycle was over because of the chemical burns she would get from the disposable pads. So, I started researching and found the answer, Reusable Cloth Menstrual Pads. This has been around since the beginning of time and such a simple idea. So I taught myself how to sew for her and shortly after, our home sewing business was born, offering other ladies and girls a comfortable and chemical free alternative. We offer an affordable way to stay natural, vegan, and toxin free during each cycle. Each cloth pad is hand-crafted.. Cloth pads are very soft and feel like you are not wearing a pad at all. We encourage each woman and girl just staring out, to try cloth. You will not be disappointed.

I choose only the highest quality of fabrics. I take great pride and detail in each pad that goes out. I will spend hours and sometimes days deciding which fabrics and prints my customers will enjoy. I make a product that will last many years which saves you money each month and every year.

I have the best customer base ever! I appreciate all my customers present, past and future they have helped support a work at home mom. I do the sewing and also employ other stay at home moms at times to help keep pads in stock and help them to supplement their income as well.

Frequently asked questions
Why use cloth pads?

Saves you money
Saves environment by reducing waste
Reduces your exposure to chemicals
Greater comfort

How many pads do I need?

It varies person to person, but a good starting point will be the number of disposables you used per day plus a few. Also be sure to have extras on hand while your pads are being washed.

Washing instructions?

Store in a tote or cotton bag 'til laundry day. Then rinse til water runs clear. Use peroxide/water mix and/or sun your cloth for tough stains. Toss in washer, then tumble dry at normal heat. No bleach, softeners, or ironing needed.

Which top fabric is best?

Pick your favorite!
Cotton tops is a quilter's cotton or cotton woven, and are smooth and result in a thinner pad. Cotton will stay stain free with the proper cleaning routine.
Minky is a soft, plush, and very stain resistant material. This is a stay dry fabric that is still breathable easy to keep stain free.

Custom and personalized orders

Pantyliners have no inner core. They are great for everyday use, cup backups, and are great for good hygiene, and spotting.

Light to Moderate pads have one layer absorbency core of Zorb and are great for a day pad.

Heavy flow pads have a inner core of two layers of Zorb. This absorbency is great for heavy, overnight, and day pad for postpartum.

Postpartum pads still have two layers of Zorb and are longer in length for extra coverage for a very heavy flow.

Will my pads leak?

CreationsByFive pads are backed with a high quality moisture barrier fleece that is made in America. This fleece does NOT have a "water resistant" chemicals sprayed on. This fleece is soft and breathable.
You will want to choose the right absorbency for your flow because any pad no matter the backing can leak over the sides if the core material gets over saturated. So you will want to change often enough so that you can enjoy a comfortable stay dry feeling during your cycle.
