Repairing An Old Favorite Toy

Repairing An Old Favorite Toy

 

Elizabeth Mulford contacted me one day and asked if I could clean up her Father’s cherished stuffed rabbit toy.  It was an old, straw-stuffed animal and I told her that I may not be able to do more than find a way to fix the holes and create a new outfit.  She said she understood and sent me the toy.  Below is the before and after as well as Elizabeth’s reaction:

“Thank you so much, Liane! He is perfect and my husband actually was choked up when he saw the photo and that takes a lot from him. He will be perfect to pass along to my niece’s baby and I am so thrilled to have my dad’s toy restored. I will highly recommend you and in the future I may have another animal for myself as my dad had an old bear as well who is not in as worn of a condition but needs love and maybe an outfit as his is long gone. …. Thank you so much again. I know little to nothing about my father’s early life so having these toys restored makes me feel like I am closer to him again. Elizabeth Mulford   (Just letting you know he arrived safely and is even better than what I said about the pictures! I love it! Thank you again!)”

Son’s 60-Year-Old Teddy Bear Becomes a Gift for New Great Grandson

Joan Lombard sent her son's 60-year-0ld teddy bear to have it refurbished for her great grandson who is scheduled to enter the world this month. Although we aren't a doll or bear hospital, sometimes I will do a repair or refurbishing of an old bear or cloth doll. I won't work with collector dolls and bears because what I do can hurt their value. I work with dolls and bears meant to be played with and kept in the family.Joan Lombard sent her son’s 60-year-0ld teddy bear to have it refurbished for her great grandson who is scheduled to enter the world this month.

Variety of Garments Combined to Make Six Memorable Bears

Irene Blundell sent us quite a little pile of different garments to have six specific bears made. She wanted two bears with hats and ties from her late husbands garments, two bears from her late mother's robe and night gown and two bears made from a couple of pairs of shorts that were a family joke that her late husband shared in.Irene Blundell sent us quite a little pile of different garments to have six specific bears made.
