Revamping worn out g diaper liners!!!

So if you are like me you probably hate to throw things out. Especially when you spent good money on them. Well one kind of diaper I have in my stash is g diapers. Although I do like my g's I have always been more than a little annoyed at how quickly the snap in liners get worn out. I have a skinny legged baby and once they get stretched out we have leaks like mad. Well since they get to this point within a matter of a few months I decided I must do something about it. Here is a quick tutorial on giving new life to those worn out liners......and for all those mamas who don't sew or don't have time I do offer this service!!! (just email me)
Step 1: Take the worn out liner and remove all of the elastic binding with a seam ripper.
Step 2: Using 5/8 inch plush FOE (I buy mine from foeyourdiaper.com ) you need to bind the liner. Stretch as tightly as possible while you are sewing and use a long stitch length.
Step 3: when you get back to the starting point I like to flip it over and straight stitch it down like they do with the original binding.

Step 4: admire you work : )

This is probably what your worn out liner looks like. Take that stuff off.This is a side by side of the worn out liner (with binding still attached) next to the revamped liner. WOW!

And this is your revamped liner next to that brand new g diaper liner.

***NOTE*** This is not the same elastic binding that is on g liners however it holds up much longer in my experience and honest opinion.
