Got out my newborn and small proraps and realized the elastic was shot.   Velcro and PUL are still good though.  I'd like to repair them.  I have some fold over elastic, but I'm not sure it's heavy-duty enough.  My other idea is just to pull out the bad stuff and resew with regular elastic on the outside.  How would you go about replacing elastic?

I would do fold over elastic.Easy to do and it would look good.I

If you need to buy more run the numbers first, pro wraps are not expensive and new ones could be less than some of the FOE I have seen.
