S's Tykie Knits "Flamingo" Soaker on Corriedale

A dear friend got to visit recently! It was such a wonderful time to get to visit again. It's always so nice to laugh until your sides hurt and tears run down your cheeks. She wanted to learn to sew so that she could make herself some cloth menstrual pads (aka mamacloth). While teaching her I sewed up a few pads for her to take home with her (forgive the wonky pics - I forgot to take pics before I sent them home with her so these had been crammed in her suitcase).

3 daytime cloth pads
M's 3 day pads

3 overnight/heavy flow pads
M's 3 overnight pads

she wants to try various shapes/sizes so I drew out approx 13-16 different shapes/sizes. A few are freebie patterns on the net but others are after a sposie pad or freehand after seeing something similar or completely freehand tweaking to what she described she wanted.
