Give a way from For the Love

Heather, the mom behind has offered a great give away for all my lovely readers. You have the chance to win one short mama cloth pad (approximately 10" long, 3 1/2"wide not including wings) from For the Love... Heather will chose the colors but the pad will be topped in flannel and backed with PUL.

A little about Heather:
Why is mama cloth important to you?
Cloth menstrual pads are important for so many reason. First, like cloth diapering, using mama cloth is so much better for our earth and our environment. All of those disposable menstrual products really make a negative impact on our environment. Another reason is it is SO much healthier! Add to that the fact that using mama cloth has show to reduce the length and cramping of your periods and I'm a fan!

How did you get started making mama cloth?
I actually started making mama cloth as a "Toddler Pee-Pee Pad". My son was potty learning (all on his own!) and I needed something as a "just in case". So I made up what is now known as my short pad. It was topped in flannel, had several absorbant layers, and was backed in PUL. I snapped them into his little underwear just like if you were using a pad. They were absorbant enough for one pee, but didn't feel like a diaper on him, so that he KNEW he had an accident. From there, I just figured if cloth was good enough for him, it was good enough for me. I expanded my cloth line from there.

How long have you been sewing?
I have actually been sewing for about 15 years. I've always been crafty, and able to make something out of nothing for as long as I can remember. In fact, one of my first sewing projects was an outfit for my dog (back before dressing your dog up was cool!). I made it out of one of my old pairs of jeans and a flannel shirt that was past it's prime. I measured him and drew out my own pattern to make that outfit.
