Closing your Bears and Plushies

Seems like no matter where I am or which set of grandchildren I am with, there are always soft toys to repair. Today it was Hunter’s little teddy bear with the head holding on by a few stitches. I think he is really excited to have it back all fixed and he can play with it again. He is such a sweet little man, saying thank you and blowing kisses to Nana in thanks. Love my grandbabies!

I have found the easiest way to fix the seams in these guys is to use a ladder stitch and pull it all together. It seems to keep them together and give new life back into the little guys. But, be sure all the stuffing is secure and you take into account the seam allowance.
