Anyone had any luck repairing small PUL tears? I have some old fuzzy bunzs that have small tears where the label is sewn on. Has anyone had any luck with a waterproof glue? I want to catch it before it gets big. I also need to replace the elastic in the legs. My mom suggested I make a casing for it instead of sewing through the elastic which will weaken it. Makes sense, the elastic in the back is still good.

Depending on how big the hole is or what kind. I have had luck with folding it onto itself a bit and then sewing on the inside to hide the hole. It's not pretty....but it works!
