Loving my Pink Lemonade Shop Cloth Pads #PLS

plsre

Sizes Available: 7 Sizes  

Topped: Organic Bamboo Velour | Minkee | Bamboo Fleece

Inner Core (absorbent layers):  layers are made of bamboo fleece

Backing (waterproof layer):  PLS pads are backed with water Resistant Windpro Fleece

Extras: All pads are wing style and are fastened with a quality poly-resin snap

Absorbency: I used my PLS pads after a month of not getting my period, due to still breastfeeding so my period was a bit heavier then other months. PLS had me covered I did not leak once. I did however change my cloth pad every time I went to the restroom. The flow went right down on the center of my pad, that just shows to prove its an awesome pad to me. I have a few other pads that the flow goes down to the wings, but that did not happen with my PLS. 

Workmanship : Sue uses nothing but the very best fabric materials for her pads. These pads are made with lots of love and attention to detail. They are high quality pads in every way. 

How may you ask? Fabric materials used are high quality (bamboo velour, bamboo fleece, minky, wind pro fleece), lots of LOVE!!! 

Style|Fit : Pink Lemonade cloth pads are rounded  front and back. The fit is great, after you figure out what size works best for you. I notice, I like longer pads I feel more covered that way. Really just depends on what you like and what fits your body frame. Also should I mention that I wore my pads with tight leggins and you could not notice them 🙂

My Stats:

26 years old| 160 lbs | 5’5

Normally I am heavy first 2-3 days and after that it becomes lighter.

Overall: I am completely in love with my Pink Lemonade Pads. I currently have 7 of their pads, and cannot wait to add more to my stash. I am currently still breastfeeding my son, so there are some months I do not get my period, but when I do. I love using my PLS pads. The quality and workmanship of these pads is just amazing. Not to mention Sue whom is a sweetheart and her Assistant Alex. They offer such a great customer service, which to me, is key to a successful business. Sue offers an array of pattern choices, I think thats the hardest part in choosing 🙂 These pads are totally affordable, and Sue is always offering discounts on her pads. Making it easy for you to build a stash. You will not be disappointed.

DIY Fabric Washi Tape

 Do It Yourself Fabric Washi Tape www.sewfatty.com

My friend Benetta recently sent me happy mail she included some of her super cute washi tape. I was totally hooked. So I’ve started making washi to use for gifts and recently for Christmas. So here I am showing you how to make your very own from scraps of fabric you may have laying around. 

 

Things you’ll need : Do It Yourself Fabric Washi Tape www.sewfatty.com

  • fabric choice / fabric scraps ( you want to make sure your fabric is nice and ironed. If not, you’ll have wrinkled washi)
  • double sided adhesive tape ( carpet tape is another choice)
  • scissors/ rotary cutter

How to make Washi-AWESOMENESS : 

  • apply one side of your tape onto fabric and press firmly
  • grab your scissors/rotary cutter and cut your strips.
  • when ready to use, you can cut your long strip in small pieces.
  • peel the back and use on whatever your heart desires.

 

What to use washi tape on ?
gift wrapping, scrapbooking, crafts, the possibilities are endless.

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. 

Happy Washi Making.

Valenzuela’s way’s on Going Green

Living a green life, is important to our family. We try to teach our kids the importance of preserving the earth. We are not perfect and I’m sure there are other ways to be green, but here are some ways we the Valenzuela’s try to be Green. 

Valenzuela Boys in Cloth Diapers

1. Cloth Diapers: our boys are cloth diapered, we avoid using disposable diapers, they just add more waste to our landfills. With cloth diapers we just keep on reusing them, they are better for our babies, the environment and money saver. 

2. Lights Off : I remember my dad always telling us to “turn off the lights if you’re not using them”. So since forever, I’ve always had that instilled in me. Funny thing is, even when I’m not in my own home, and visiting a friend, my parents home. I still tend to turn off people’s lights. 🙂  So we teach our kids the same, its such an important thing to teach them. 

3. Reusable Napkins : we DO NOT buy paper hand towels. We think of it as a waste of money, and more waste added to our landfills. So we choose to not buy them and we use cloth napkins, our kids are so used to it, that it doesn’t phase them to not have paper towels. 

4. Lead by example : our kids do everything we do. So be a good example to them,  and they will follow.
