HERE ARE THE 24 STOMA PADS for Ruth's Great-Niece. They are really easy to do and I'm just starting a new batch. These are for Katie J Morris who is nearly 1. A big thankyou to Meganne who digitised this great design. Love and blessings Chris

For "amholb0". Didn't know if you would find a private message so found the design file and some instructions you can read through. Welcome to Cuties.

how did you make these? My friends have two children with g-tubes and these look just like the little pads they put around the tube for the leaking. How many layers and do you just hoop all the material at once and then cut them out?

Well done Chris, I may have another look at them and see if I can incorporate the stitching to attach the Velcro. We can put our heads together next time I see you. Hugs n roses, Meganne

I didn't know either so I googled it and found this explanation
Stoma Pads are soft, flexible cushions which are placed between the tracheostomy tube neck flange and the patient’s neck.

This was very kind of you. I would have done some, but the postage would have been too much from here. I was looking at them. I bet that they will want to wash these in a pillow case or lingerie bag so they don't go down the hole with the water. Just a thought.

What are stoma pads used For?

meganne by meganne 27 Oct 2011

When someone has a bag attached to their body, either for feeding or draining of urinary or faecal waste, they often have to insert a pad between the bag and the skin because any leakage is usually highly acidic and it burns and ulcerates the skin. That's how these pads will be used. Hugs n roses, Meganne

Well, it was easy as Meganne's design was quick. It took longer to put the pieces of Velcro on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love Chris

Chris where does the velcro strip go on these? You did a wonderful job - I know they are appreciated!! Hugs, Laura*

Can you see the open cut - that is where I put a piece of Velcro - one part goes on the top of the left hand side and then under the right hand side I put the opposite piece. So when you put one side onto the other it grips. I hope this makese sense. Love Chris

dailylaundry by dailylaundry 12 Oct 2011

I see now where the velco goes. That probably was the hardest part of the project.

Thanks so much for the lovely comments. I've just finished sewing the 50 little velcro strips onto each pad and will post them off tomorrow. Love Chris

Wow! That is awesome and generous for making so many. You must be able to fit a few in one hooping. They are going to be thrilled to receive so many.

Hi Anita, I started off making 4 in my 5x7 hoop and did that a few times. Then this afternoon I put them in my 150x360 and did 9 at a time. I've made 50 of them - I'm just sewing on the Velcro strips (very small!!!!) Love Chris

I think she will need a lot! They have to be changed frequently. Love Chris

Hi Monika, I used Flannelette on top and woollen batting (I use it for my quilts). I didn't use any stabliser and only used white through the colour changes. Meg said she did a couple, but it was easier just to sew straight through without changing. Love Chris
