Soft Toy Repairs
Many teddy bears and other furry creatures are the cherished possessions of family members, who wish to hand them on to future generations. Repairs can take a few days or even a few months to finish. It can often be difficult to find the right parts and materials for vintage items. The crumbed foam, wood wool and kapok types of stuffing used in old soft toys can make this work very messy and time-consuming. However, my priority is to repair toys for children as quickly as possible.
This large dog’s condition had badly deteriorated over many years.
With gentle cleaning, damage mended, new eyes and nose, and a white ribbon, he was ready to attend his owner’s wedding as the ‘Best Man’.
Soft Bear: Before
Teddy was attacked by a dog. After repairing his muzzle and paw pads, and giving him new eyes and a nose, he was cleaned to remove any ‘doggie odour’ that may have remained.
