Can someone fix my BG AIOs?? Or can I?

My first diaper purchase EVER *nostalgic * were 6 BG AIOs.

I hated them.

After not even a year of use the elastic was completely shot and the velcro was so pilly it wouldn't hold AT ALL. They've been sitting in my diaper closet for about 2 years now... just sitting. I can't GIVE these things away, they aren't useable. I'd prefer to do 1 of two things: 1) Pay to have someone fix them and then sell them, or 2) Attempt to fix them myself and then use them as my diaper for when at Grandma's/Nana's house.

If they were pockets this would be a lot easier, but I can't find any tutes on fixing the elastic on an AIO.

Is there anyone that knows, and has experience with, changing the elastic in an AIO and can either price quote me or explain to me how to do it??

THANKS!

Is it the sized AIO or the organic?

I have fixed the elastic and aplix in BG AIOs. You have to open up the stitching in the front of the diaper. Enough to flip the diaper inside out. Then the elastic replacement is just like replacing a pocket's elastic.
