The Teddy Bear Doctor has made and fixed Bears and Friends for the past 20. She first started making fur bears out of old coats, "Dear Bears". Then she was asked to restore a friends beloved teddy bear and the rest is history. The stories and pictures were so much fun, that I decided to share them.
Watch for the Winnie the Pooh at the end of the video. This little guy came all the way from Mexico. His body was all worn out from loving. It seemed like an easy task at first, but turned into a nightmare! I went to more than 20 thrift stores over the Thanksgiving weekend looking for a donor bear. I found loads of Pooh Bears, but the new ones are the wrong color match.
I finally found a Pooh rug that was a good match at the last thrift store. See him lounging on the rug.
We have been so busy fixing teddies and other stuffies that we haven't been able to post for a long time. Recently someone requested that we just show more before and after pictures. So here goes a few:
This poor panda had lots of holes in his head - excelsior falling, stains and lots of dirt.
After taking him apart, removing weird stuffing and cleaning, we began to repair his face.
