Hand Made Japanese Silk Bunny Meets Dog!!!!

This was a sad day for this little Bunny and for the momma of this small bunny.  She was so upset that the momma threw the stuffy in the trash.  Fortunately for her, her boyfriend found it in the trash.  He knew that this little stuffy meant a lot to the momma and pulled it out and google Teddy Bear Doctor.  And he found "The Doctor".

This was a first for the Doctor - Japanese fabric - not easy to fine.  But with a little research - walking to the local Antique Kimono Shop on Main!  The owner told the Doctor of a local artist/ fabric store Lorna of  the Asian and Batik Quilting Fabric store that she might have some fabric that would match the bunny.

A letter from Charles, the boyfriend who pulled the rabbit from the trash.
"Oh my goodness! What an absolutely amazing job you've done! I can't thank you enough! I must have missed the email when you sent it, Im so glad you mentioned it again, I'm sorry I didn't see it sooner!

I'm totally speechless, I never knew it was possible to repair something so well that I was convinced was done for.

Thank you again, Terra will adore it!

Happy Thanksgiving - How some teddies lose their stuffing

Tuffy the Christmas Bear Gone Bad

This little guy has been really loved!  I wasn't sure what went where?!  Strings and bits of fabric all over the place.  

What is with the giant lump on the side of his head...poor guy.  Looks like high school all over again.

The back view isn't much better.  Mega clean up for Mr. Tuffy.

We removed all of his tattered rags and this is what was underneath it all.   He looks a little strange with the one white ear, but that was under his hat!  Wow was he white!!!!

As you can see we have to really wash him well in order to clean him, the difficulty with which is that it will never be as white as it was. 

 The back side is not much better

Renewed Tuffy!!  We couldn't believe how white he got.  We redid his outfitting with a old red and green t-shirt and appliqued his name on his hat.
