Patterns for making your own cloth pads

 
These pad making patterns are provided here for use by the home sewer to make pads for themselves
 
These patterns are for private home use only, you cannot sell these patterns or pads made from these patterns (even if you make slight modifications to them). If you do not agree to these terms, do not download the patterns!
 
The patterns are all in .gif format (an image), and have a size indication on them in cm and inches. If your pattern isn't printing to scale then try adjusting your settings. To make sure these patterns print out to the right size, I would recommend downloading the image file, inserting it into a word document file (or similar), and draging it to resize it as needed to make the size guage correct. You could elongate/shorten the pad patterns in this way too if you wanted.

Pad Pattern Stencil Idea
I have an idea for making an easy to sew pattern.... :) When you have a pattern you like, get some stiff cardboard or plastic to make permanent template from. Mark the sewing line of the pattern onto the template, in broken lines. Then mark out the cutting line out. So you have this effect:
 

 
Use a craft knife to cut out the broken lines, so that you have a stencil. Then when you trace out your pattern onto the fabric, you mark both the line you need to sew on, and the line you need to cut out. Cut the pieces out on your cutting line, and you should be left with your pad shaped piece with a line you need to sew on. So each pad should line up perfectly, and your sewing should always be neat and even.(You would really only need the sewing guide traced onto the top piece)
