Contemplating reusable pads, well pantyliners

So I had to make another trip to the store today to get pantyliners, which is annoying since I just recently started using a cup. I still waste a lot of money and paper wearing a pantyliner every day since I tend to have a lot of discharge. I also wear them on my period just so I wont ruin a pair of underwear. Anyways, I think I am going to look into cloth pads. :) However, I was wondering where you can buy them for cheap prices? These pads look great:

But since they're expensive I'm not sure whether it would actually be cost effective to switch from disposable pantyliners to those. Since I'd be using them everyday, I would like to have a large supply. (The miniliner is a whole 14 dollars with shipping.)

So in short, can anyone recommend a cheap place to buy them? Also how easy are they to make? I am pretty decent with a needle and thread, and my mom can teach me almost anything I don't know. I'd like to be able to make the ones with snap closures and have them be all one piece.

P.S. I'm moving into a dorm soon. Can these be washed discreetly?
