+++ snap or velcro closure
Step 1: Print pattern and cut out the fabric. 
When printing the pattern please ensure you are printing at the scale of 100% to ensure your pattern will be printed properly.
Step 2: With the top piece wrong side up, place your core pieces in the centre (I used two layers of ABSORB) and PIN.
Step 3: Sew around the core piece to secure it to the top piece, flip right side up. 
Step 4: Place the two right sides together on both top and bottom. PIN.
Step 5: Sew around the outer edges of the pad, remember to leave room to turn. 
Step 6: Trim outer edges, and don't forget the corners! 
Step 7: TURN
Step 8: IRON and PIN the turn hole inwards, sew over the seam and around the outer edge of the pad.
Step 9: Sew around the outer edge, 3/8" in from the last seam. 
Step 10: TRIM threads and IRON
Step 11: Fasten snaps, or sew on velcro.
Step 12: PREP your pad by washing it to reach maximum absorbency (I also prewash my fabric, ABSORB can be washed by serger or zigzag stitch the outer edge) 
Step 13: COMPLETE!!!
