Help!

Postby Chunkychels » Mon Oct 12, 2015 8:07 pm

I have just brought 17 preloved BG one size aplix nappies but the Velcro on some are in bad shape and I want to convert them to snaps but I'm worried about messing them up ... I need to know how to do them if they are easy to convert ... Or would anyone like to do them for me :) .... Please help as much as you can ladies :)
