Restoring Teddy... Teddy is ready to go home.


Here is Philips Teddy.......
For all that have followed him over the last few posts.


I don't think I can do any more for him.


I know you have seen his picture when he arrived at the cottage.
Sad little soul....
You can see he was loved to bits... almost in bits......

The finished result.

Perkins doesn't look so smug now does he ?

Guys I have a busy week ahead, so please don't think I have forgotten you if I don't post for a while. Showing you Teddy is something I really wanted to do as everyone keeps emailing and asking me about him...
He is ready to go home. I know that his owners have seen his photo's so I hope they don't mind that I now show you.
We thought he looked rather distinguished. He has the air of a retired gentleman.. He has a suit to protect his aged "bits".
I am rubbish at making hats for bears, but all that is missing is a Panama hat.

Now I am going to have with drawl symptoms until my next bear challenge....

For Kirstin...HEN LIGHTED TO HAVE HAD HIM VISIT SOGGIBOTTOM COTTAGE IN DEVON X X X

Teddy hardly looks like the same bear! You've done a fantastic job; if Brigsby ever needs a fix (and I doubt he ever will, because NO ONE is touching him!!), I will be sure to send him to the Soggibottom Clinic! ;)

XoXo

He looks much happier... and I love the suit!

I have a feeling he'll be strutting and plucked up with pride in his appearance for quite some time.

Bear ego inflation!

Dolores said...

WOW, that is spectacular. He certainly is a very different bear with a new lease on life. Well done!!

Gina said...

He looks so distinguished. So different from when he arrived

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I happen to know that there is nothing better than a happy bear!
Can you imagine the stories Teddy will tell when he goes back home.
He will talk about all the love and attention of his wonderful nurse at Soggibottom. The memories will live in his heart forever.
love
tweedles
