About this project

I am now offering a service for reworking damaged (or just jaded) old teddies. The idea came when a customer commissioned me to rebirth their old bear (Robinson, shown), which had been horribly mauled by her dog. They wanted a fully punked-up individual with all the trimmings. As not everyone wants a punky teddy, I can go more gently if necessary - however it won’t be a traditional restoration service! Costs depend on the nature of the project although I can work to a budget.
