I found this handsome guy in the dirt outside the auction house! When I found him, his head had come off and both of his legs were ripped open. I took  pity on him and packed him up.

When i got home that day, I took out my little dollar-store sewing kit and set to work. I re-attached his head, closed up his legs and all the other little tears he had.

Look how nice he turned out! I know he was probabaly thrown away because he was all torn, but are people now-a-days too lazy to even do a little sewing to restore a beautiful teddy bear? I'm not a great seamsstress myself, but hey at least I am willing to try!

Now he sits in my living room with a bunch of other teddy bears that I've rescued through the years.
