Remember to print to actual size, do not select fit to page when printing. You may download the pattern from this link up to four times.

I recommend either printing or photocopying the pattern onto acetate sheet (clear plastic) and using this as it will remain true to size and wont distort after tracing around it multiple times.
You can also lay a sheet of clear plastic over top of the pattern and trace it carefully by hand.
It also helps when there is the need for perfect pattern placement ie a specific part of the fabric design/pattern (fussy cuts)

Mishmash Cloth Pads are made as either an exposed core or AiO style and are made from the original Mishmash pattern/shape.
The term ‘exposed core’ refers to the core or absorbent part of the pad that is stitched on top instead of hidden in between layers.
This style of pad offers great flexibility as well as excellent comfort and fit with the bonus of making many combinations from a range of materials including minky, cotton, velour (Bamboo and Cotton) as well as Raw silk.
The AiO style pads are light, flexible and very trim. The absorbent core is stitched beneath the top layer.

All fabrics are pre washed (except for synthetics such as minky) to prevent any possible distortions in the finished shape.
Hemp fleece is a highly absorbent fabric, perfectly suited as a core material for these cloth pads.
The composition of the hemp fleece used here is Hemp 55% Certified Organic Cotton 45% and the thickness is measured as 430gsm.
It stiffens when washed and dried but when crumpled up it becomes soft again. It is quite different to bamboo.
High quality soft 1 mil PUL polyester knit is used and is included as a standard hidden layer.
This excerpt is taken from the PUL suppliers website.
“…..1 mil PUL is flexible to work with, not “crackly/crunchy” and less likely to crack or split over time as thicker PULs can be. It also provides a high level of breathability. “PUL” is an ancronym for “PolyUrethane Laminate”. It is a process of bonding two fabrics together with a layer of PU (Polyurathane sheet) to make them seem as one.”
