How to repair BGEs?

Obviously, the original Bumgenius Elementals are known for getting holes in the cotton near the leg elastic, and at the soaker. My question is what is the best way to repair these? Have people had good luck with hand sewing the holes? Is it better to sew a cotton patch over the holes?
Thanks!

I've seen it done where the entire cotton thing is removed and a new one sewn in. I don't know if I'd want to do patches because it seems like it would irritate the skin.

Someone posted a link for how she repairs them in the comments of my blog. Let me see if I can find it. Hang on

I think that the thread would irritate if you hand stitched them. Honestly, if it's not making them leak, I wouldn't do anything.

I have hand stitched any hole that went all the way through. They looks 1000 times better and don't irritate my daughter at all. The holes don't get bigger and pretty much go away because you sewed them close.
