More Teddy Miracles

More Teddy Miracles

Miracles are happening every day at Bearland

BUT Sometimes they seem impossible!

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.

Before & After - The Dragon

The Dragon

The dragon's head was in tatters.  The first thing was to find some matching fabric.



Then the head had to be carefully taken apart so it could be used as a pattern.

Before & After - What Happened To My Eyes????

 That was a tough fight!

              Before                                                       After          


Before & After - Yellow Teddy

I came to the hospital with a broken neck - too much lovin.
I left with a spa treatment, a repaired back and reconnected neck.

Ready to go home

Before & After - Panda

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.

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!
