TAMPONS | Free crochet pattern

It's international women's day! A day where we highlight inequality and women's rights around the globe! What a marvelous time to share this free crochet tampon pattern with you!


All women have some kind of relation towards periods even if all women don't necessarily have them. So why not talk about them? Why are we still hiding our tampons when we go to the bathroom? Let's make a revolution and bring out those tampons. Weave them high in the air and dance our way to the bathroom. Are you with me?


Here's two free crochet patterns for you! One pattern for a small tampon and one for a bigger one. OBS! Do not use these tampons in your vagina. But wear them proudly on your bag or keys! ;)
