frilly stuff and T.L.C

A work mate asked me ages ago to repair his teddy bear. This poor teddy had been in storage, in pieces and covered in sawdust, he was looking very unloved.



So today I unstitched, unstuffed, re-assembled, stuffed and stitched him back together again. I gave him a brush too. He's looking much happier but I'm thinking I might make him a waistcoat to freshen him up.I also finished a Moonshine "Frilly Bag" today, so that's another finish for OPAM challenge for March. I fell in love with this bag at the AQC, just had to have one, it's so girlly!!Now off to make a waistcoat!

Love the bag Jo - Youd didn't waste anytime getting it made LOL. You have given Mr Ted a fantastic new lease of life. You could open up a hospital .....

Sarah said...

Hey Jo!
I agree, that ted needs a coat!! You did a good job of putting him altogether again :+)
That bag is so chic! I have made a couple for gifts some time ago!

Poor Ted. He looks much happier now that he is fixed. A waistcoat would look nice, good idea.
Am loving the frilly bag.

I'm so in to girlie things,and that bag is sooooo gorgeous! I love the fabric you chose.
Teddy looks much happier! Yes, he'd do well with a waistcoat. :-) I rescued a couple of very old teddies from the op shop last year and one of them is sporting a felt waistcoat I made him, he looks loved now.

Jan said...

It's great to see you have made the bear happy again! The bag is gorgeous.
