How to Repair Cloth Diaper Elastic

I’ve realized that some of our diapers have elastic that is a little stretched out. So once again off to Google I go to find a GOOD tutorial on cloth diaper elastic repair.

Yip, yip YIPEEE!!!! I found a post over at Mama’s Laundry Talk that is PERFECT. It’s easy to follow, has plenty of pictures and DOES NOT REQUIRE A SEWING MACHINE! Woohoo on the last one!

Here’s a preview:

I will admit that I just could not figure out why my BumGenius Diapers were leaking last summer.  I had stripped them and the fit was still okay.  So I couldn’t fathom what the problem was.

Turns out, the elastic was shot and they looked like this:

Fuzzi Bunz Shot Elastic

How could I not have noticed this?

(I realize this is a Fuzzi Bunz in the picture.  It was the only one I currently have with shot elastic that I could use for pictures.)

I get by the best I can and that's the truth. Aside from being a mother I am a wife, pretty good cook, good intermediate seamstress, musician, music lover and blogger.
