Hi everyone, wondered if anybody has any suggestions as to who might be able to help with adjusting some of our nappies? Amber (nappy nurse) is closed to repairs at the mo...does anyone else do the same thing? I have about 3 BBSS nappies in large that need the leg elastic shortening or replacing as my LO has no thigh chub whatsoever and they gape at the legs no matter what I do!
I think it's easy! I snip the fleece at the 2 ends of the leg area to expose the elastic. Snip the elastic off leaving a small stubb to enable you to attach new elastic to it (no fancy sewing skills required) at each end. When you have sewn the elastic to one end, attach a safety pin the the lose end of elastic and feed through under the fleece until you reach the other stubb at the end and sew. Then you just sew up the small hole that was made in the fleece.
you know what....that DOES sound easy! Thanks hun ...the BBSS fit so well everywhere apart from the thigh, so if I can make them fit her it'd be a godsend. OK, next question: where could I bug the right kind of elastic?
