Jayne is a growling bear, she has been created as a special request. Standing at 12 inches tall she is gently weighted with steel shot for a lovely tactile quality.
Filled with heavyweight polyester and wood wool, her pads are made of wool felt and she has black glass eyes and an embroidered nose and mouth.
I gave her some accent shading to her features and simply accessorised her with a crinkly golden bow.

This photograph was very kindly sent to me today showing the moment this lady saw the contents of a box she'd received.
. . . It contained a bear I had recently restored.
The lady's childhood bear had been sent to me for repairs and was to be a surprise birthday gift for her from her Mum.
I'd say she looks genuinely overjoyed to see her much loved old friend looking in his prime again :0)
I was so pleased to be able to share the moment with this photograph.

Despite his torn ear and his slightly grubby
fur this Ted doesn't look in too bad a way, however the worst problem
was hidden from view, his stuffing was discovered (as I set about
topping it up) to be the old foam chips that disintegrate and turn into a very unhealthy, powdery and often sticky mess over time.
This was soon remedied as I replaced it with new clean safety compliant stuffing. Ted's fur was also cleaned, he then had his missing ear replaced and his mouth stitching tidied up.
He's now safely home ;0)

The BEFORE and AFTER image of this old Ted shows he was in desperate need of some new paw and foot pads and of course some eyes!
With those in place, I then gave him a gentle cleaning to spruce up his fur and finally he was given a growl in order to let us know how much happier he is!
