The internet is home to a lot of wacky shit, but spend enough time on Etsy and you’ll become convinced that this is where the weirdest people on Earth come to expel their crazy in the form of crafts. Here, we bring you the best of the bunch. (Sure, we know and love Regretsy, but the taming the loons of the Internet is a big job and we’re just doing our part.)
Today’s crazy thing is a handmade sanitary napkin with cartoon monkeys and giant bananas on it. It’s 100 percent pre-washed, pre-shrunk cotton. The reusable pad has been quilted and top-stitched to help with absorbency and it comes with detailed care instructions. Similar products are available with froggies and coffee cups from Lucky Girl Boutique.
Presumably this was created in an effort diminish the waste created from disposable sanitary napkins and tampons. We get that. More power to you if you’re conscientious enough to use an alternate means of dealing with the tangible part of menstruation. Hell, get yourself a Keeper and store it all up for a day to completely eliminate the waste. We love the environment, too, so we support all of these efforts.
But it doesn’t have to be cutesy.
