“MotherMoonPads was born out of a passion for sewing, a desire to become more green (or “crunchy”), and a need to contribute to our household income while raising our children.
My name is Denelle, and I live in Medford, Oregon with my husband (Henry), my 16 year old daughter (Gwendolynne), my 5 year old son (Ezekiel), and my 3 year old daughter (Eleanor), MotherMoonPads is my full time job. If you’d like to “meet” me, you can visit me on Youtube!
I became a WAHM (Work At Home Mom) in June of 2007 when I was expecting my second child. I left my position as an accounting clerk and started a business called KeepYourBabyClose. I created hundreds of beautiful and functional baby carriers. Baby carriers were a gateway into a whole different world, one of Attachment Parenting and a desire to leave the world a better place than when I entered it. I discovered cloth diapers and mama cloth (and many other fabulous reusable products!).
Around October of 2008, I added a line of reusable cloth menstrual pads to my store. These became increasingly popular, and I discontinued making baby carriers. I closed my KeepYourBabyClose Etsy store, and opened MotherMoonPads where my main focus was on reusable cloth menstrual pads. Since then, I have created more than 17,000 reusable cloth menstrual pads. I have sold on multiple websites (HyenaCart, eBay, Diaperswappers, ClothDiaperNation and others). Each reusable cloth pad is handmade by myself, and myself alone.
I take pride in each reusable cloth menstrual pad that I create. Every morning, Monday through Friday, I wake up, feed my children, and then sit down in my studio. I choose which fabrics will be turned into mama cloth for the day. I typically make 30-40 pads each day, depending on the absorbency. I only use the highest quality fabrics (which means no Walmart fabrics!) purchased from ethical sources. I love to sew with soft velours and super soft minky. I use fabrics that were made specifically to be ultra absorbent yet trim, like Zorb.
I believe that family is the most important thing in life. I am so blessed that I have the opportunity to raise my family while keeping a roof over our heads and food on the table. Every purchase that you make directly contributes to our family’s budget. I take pride in making things that will last. After all, isn’t that why you are buying reusable cloth menstrual pads in the first place? Rest assured that your MotherMoonPads are created with high quality products and an attention to detail, and will last you for many years to come.”
