Contoured Nursing Pads Pattern



One of the downsides of closing my Pampered Cheeks website was no longer providing access to the free patterns that I had available there. I didn't have a ton of traffic (probably less than my faux fuzzis post on this blog receives), but I did have some traffic. Someone contacted me today via Facebook requesting my pattern for contoured nursing pads. I took a few minutes to turn my old webpage into a pdf document and shared it. I decided to publish a blog post so it could be easily accessed. I hope in time the Google search bots and other web pages that used to link to pamperedcheeks.com will direct people here (at least as long as this blog lasts).

You can download the pattern for the pieces here (links to Dropbox):

This pattern was one of my most favorite patterns. These are hands-down the best pads I ever tried, loosely modeled from a commercial set I came across that were made from lesser-quality fabrics. The pattern is also a great use for "scraps" of fabric that might otherwise be thrown away (especially unique leftovers from cloth diaper patterns).

  1. Absolutely the best nursing pads out there! Reminds me I should pull out my pattern and make a few more as mine are very well worn! ;)

  2. Usually the patterns I see are circular. Do you find that this one fits more comfortably?

    1. Yes, without a doubt!! I seriously don't understand why a large manufacturer isn't making these yet. They are better in so many ways.

  3. Oh my gosh.... Those were the best things ever, ever, ever! Those babies held more than any commercial pad I used, weren't noisy like the others and were so comfortable. They didn't shift all over and you couldn't tell you were wearing them!

  4. Nursing pads are absorbent pads that are used to keep breast milk from leaking or seeping through a woman's bra or shirt. Nursing pads are similar to sanitary towels for your breasts.
