I found this little cute teddy bear  abandoned in free waste room in recycling center, completely dirty and broken in several places. Of course I rescued this cutie and took home with me  Plush animals, especially teddies and bunnies trigger my deep empathy and sensitivity and I can't just pass by...

Process of restoration:


- assess what cleaning method is correct for each bear or soft toy 

- remove the filling 

- clean - in this case of a modern bear I could just give him a good bath with gentle soap and foam 

- air drying 

- add filling (here I added extra poly filling for fullness)

- fix all tears and holes 

- brush / groom 

- add  or other accessories 


Maybe you have a teddy of your own who could use a refresher?
