Mama Cloth, Part 2 – Guest Post

This is Part 2 of the Guest Posts submitted by Jen from Wandering Missionaries! You can find the first post HERE. In this part, she explains how to make a simple mama cloth pad out of a simple handkerchief! 

1. Start with a clean dry regular sized (pretty!) handkerchief, arrange it in so one corner is facing you.  Work on a flat surface the first few times.  I fold mine on my dryer.



2.  Now we are going to form the length of the pad.  I like mine on the longer side.  Fold the bottom half up about 1″ from the top.



3.  Fold the top down so that the top point meets the bottom edge.



4.  Fold the right to almost meet up with the left, leaving about 1″ space.


5.  Turn the pad so the points are facing toward you.
6.  Now we are working on the width.  I like mine about the size of my panties crotch, about 1 small hand width.  Fold once.
7. Fold again.
8. You should now be able to see the width and length of the pad you have created, but with a little tail sticking out.
9.  Fold the tail under.
10. Enjoy your $1 cloth pad!

Hi there! I’m Jen. I’m a God-loving, happily married, to Christ, 32-year-old, full-time mom to one handsome little boy! I work part-time in childcare, five days a week, at the YMCA and six days a week, for Wycliffe, a faith-based bible translation organization.

In my spare time, I blog about our journey to become full-time missionaries at Wandering Missionaries and have my fiber art business. I love God and cannot survive without daily support, nourishment, and encouragement in Him. I love my husband and rely on him to keep me sane as we walk our faith walk together in our daily lives. And I love my little boy, who keeps from sitting on the side lines and always encourages me to jump into life!

My dream is to teach French on an island in the South Pacific, Papua New Guinea in Ukarumpa and be a full-time missionary in a supportive role for Bible translation! I really enjoy meeting new people! Drop me a line at and don’t forget to check out my blog, Wandering Missions!
