A few weeks ago I was about to visit a friend I had not seen in 3 years~ 2 years ago he asked me to make him a Shmee from the comic Johnny the Homicidal Maniac. With just two days to go I ran to the thrift shop, picked up a teddy bear for 50 cents, hacked him up a bit, glued and sewed some felt to him and VIOLA! Shmee!
He really loved his shmee!
I was happy to give an old unloved teddy a new life and home.
