Ringley Revamp

When I bought this Ringley for Peanut I knew it was hand wash only, but I didn’t think it would be much of an issue. The lady at Baby on the Hip seemed surprised that I even had reservations about it not being machine washable. Ringley has machine washable options, but they were quite a bit larger, which wasn’t what I wanted. In any case, because it’s such a popular item, I reasoned the hand wash thing wouldn’t be a problem.

Goodness!–this thing gets dirty. And fast. Capital DUR, capital TEE. I hand washed it once, but I didn’t really feel like I was getting into all the nooks and crannies of the terrycloth, and then it took forever to dry. Something had to be done.

This isn’t a great before picture, but there’s a seam right here…

…which prevents you from sticking the whole thing in the wash. I undid the seam and set to work refashioning it, and figured in the worst case, I would just sew it back up.

After taking a multitude of before shots as I was untying it so I was sure I could retie it after the wash, I sewed in a piece of velcro, and voila!

Peanut hasn’t noticed a difference, and I get to wash it more frequently. Success!
