Replacing Leg elastic in BG v3.0

Postby Asta » Tue Sep 14, 2010 10:09 pm

If this is in the wrong place please let me know.

Has anyone replaced the leg elastic in BG v3s? One of mine has gone completely and most of them have stretched significantly so would be no good for another baby. They're only 8.5 months old so pretty disappointed.

Is this possible for a complete newbie to sewing? How do I go about it and what is the best type of elastic?

Thanks!

It's very easy, even for a novice! I don't use a sewing machine, I sew by hand :)

If they're only 8.5 months old get in touch with whoever supplied them they have a 12m guarantee on them. BG replaced one of mine no problem when I had issues with leg elastic in one. They were only about 3 months old then tho'. It's worth a try before getting the sewing machine out.

Unfortunately I was dead keen and bought half of them in July last year. the other half were new but bought off a friend so I can't do that with either lot :(

Thanks for the link Shaunie, I shall give it a go.
