I need some advise from crafty mamas. I have used my Bumgenuis 3.0 for 3 years now for my two boys. I like to retrofit them into pull-ups. The velcro is pretty much ...well... not velcro anymore, and boys won't wear them because they fall off. 


I have 16 of them and i think it would be worth refitting them as training pants they can pull up and down on their own. What would you recommend? Snaps? Smoked Fabric for the waistband to connect them? 


I could use a little guidance. My sewing skills are sub par, however, I'm crafty otherwise. 

Any ideas are appreciated.
