Bear Repairs

Bear repairs for all bears in need of a little extra care.

Each bear is individually assessed and the most appropriate method for that particular bear is sensitively undertaken to be either repaired, restored or conserved the bear for future generations to enjoy.

Ted

Mrs Grayson’s Ted from around 1936 came to me in a serious condition as you can see by the photos. Miraculously has made a full recovery at Pic-Nic-Bears.

Bear repair for Mme Drege

This bear came in for repair and is about 68 years old. He needed a lot of attention as the fabric had failed on his paw pads and on his nose. At some point the seem across his shoulders had split open and the head had fallen off. The head had been repaid in the past by being pushed down into the body and stitched into place meaning the bear could not turn his head and had no neck. Having carefully disjointed the bear, removed all the stuffing from the entire bear and I cleaned the fabric. I unpicked the fabric that had disintegrated from all four paw pads and the nose and replaced it with Laura Ashley upholstery weight linen in a natural colour, to match to original fabric. I repaired the split seem across the shoulders and re-stuffed and rejoined the bear, so that the head is now jointed to the body and can turn. I also treated several areas were the fabric was warn.
