I use about 8" on M and Ls.. or maybe just a touch more.. I dont cut mine until I have it where I want it, so I dont have little bits of unusable elastic.

Ill measure it to be certain when I do the other side, lol I havent yet.. because I got busy right after I made the post.

Re: How to: Fixing the leg elastic on a FB

Thanks! I have bought several FBs that need new elastic, and was beginning to get nervous, wondering if I needed polyester thread, what to do, etc etc. I'm delighted to see such a straightforward, detailed instruction set right when I need it!

Re: How to: Fixing the leg elastic on a FB

I just did it! That is such a great tutorial, thank you!!! Thinking the same way and using pretty much the same method I did the back elastic too, it took a lot longer to pull through because the PUL is so catchy but it worked great.
You have empowered me, I feel like I can do anything wth fixing diapers right now. Thanks!!

aww. I wouldve never gotten that far.. theyd have just sat in my stack of things to fix (and gee, its kind of piling up, LOL anything I have to use the machine on usually stacks up until I have so much my husband insists I clear it out... like his shorts that need fixed.. LOL I bet he misses those!) I dont know why hand sewing is so much more appealing to me

Re: How to: Fixing the leg elastic on a FB

I have a bunch to repair (several already done TY!) And, I caught your tutorial just before I started so - Thanks! We were going to take 'em apart

FWIW the back elastic is a pain! The pul sticks to the safety pin. But, it's possible, just have to be patient *sigh*.

Thanks for your lovely tutorial.

Off to repair 10 more ... 9 ...

Re: How to: Fixing the leg elastic on a FB

Oh My God. That is so easy! I have been taking out each and every stitch, then machine sewing the elastic back on, and it doesn't look the greatest. Taking all the stitches out is a total PITA!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
