Bg leg elastic

Postby charlibunny » Fri Aug 06, 2010 12:42 pm

Is it easy to fix?

After nearly 2 years i have discovered Bg's really work for us :oops: My 3 pink ones leg elastic is totally shot, i got them like this :roll: :roll:

How easy is it to do? Or can i bribe anyone to do it for me, im using them at night time too and am borrowing my sister in law's blue & green ones that im supposed to be selling :lookround: :lookround: :oops:

the offer is still open for me to fix them if you like? it really isn't too hard, but the seams can be difficult to unpick.

I repaired mine only recently, and I am not good with a sewing machine! It was really easy... There is a thread about it here somewhere. Now my sewing job is not the neatest but they work way better, and the elastic I got was a bit wider than the original BG elastic, so they are stronger.

Good luck!

WTS, its pretty easy - I haven't done BGs but I used this to figure out how to replace leg elastic in a bunch of fitteds: http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/sho ... c+tutorial

It's a bit nerve-wracking the first time but once you know what you're doing it's no problem :giggle:

ETA I just use a small pair of pointy scissors, seam rippers are not my friend :-?, and a needle and thread instead of breaking out the sewing machine!
