My younger brother brought me his childhood bear to repair when he came for Thanksgiving dinner this year.  When I saw it, I looked at my brother and said, "Are you kidding me?".

Bo Bo was the first bear he got when he was born in Germany...that thing is over 50 years old and has seen better days!  It was disgustingly filthy and in shreds!  It was stuffed with who knows what...and made worse because my brother tried to wash it by hand...ugh!

I can't tell you how many times in my years that I remember sewing on an ear or a leg...even when I went off to college, I would come home and there would be my brother, asking me to fix Bo Bo...after he got married and I got married, I never expected to see that thing again...alas, 35 years later, he's back!!!

Here is what I mean:

Front view:



Back view:



Can you see why I told him that it was time to let Bo Bo go?  There is a Bear Heaven, I am sure...last night, my brother called again to see how Bo Bo was doing...I told him that it was a lost cause and that I needed to throw him out...nope, he said he was going to come to my house and take him home as is...

Well, won't he be surprised when I give him this:



Yeah--I am a good big sister...and Bo Bo is now ready to face another 50 years... Grin.

What I did:

1. Took off what parts were left and unstuffed them.
2. Gently washed all parts and sewed all seams again
3. Embroidered a new face and replaced missing eye
4. Used body parts to make new ears
5. made new body from brown fleece
6. Stuffed with new stuffing
7.  hand sewed legs, arms, ears and head to body
8.  made a new shirt from one of my brother's old shirts
9.  I am going to make some jeans as well as soon as I can get a pair of my brother's old ones

I hope my sister and mom can keep a secret until Christmas day....ha ha...thanks for looking!

Aw, he was the Velveteen Bear! Poor Bo Bo looks so much better now! He has been truly loved in his long bear life. You are a fantastic sister.

My brother would surely get a ribbing from his fellow truckers if he carried Bo Bo around with him...but truly, most of those guys are big teddy bears themselves, so yeah, maybe I will make him a pouch to carry Bo Bo around! Grin

Update:  My mom told my brother that Bo Bo could not be saved...that what was left was in the tiny box on the hutch...my brother got all upset and could not believe it...I had put the eye and some stuffing in the tiny box.  When I got in from work, he started shouting that I had killed Bo Bo...I told him that I tried to fix him but he was beyond repair...I told him that I didn't want to tell him over the phone...

He was upset and said he could not understand how I could be such a good sewer and not be able to fix Bo Bo...I asked him if he wanted the rest of the parts...he said "no". but I handed him a box anyway...

He did not want to look, but I insisted...when he opened the box and saw the bear, he started jumping around and saying, " Look at Bo Bo!!"  yeah, he was quite excited and gave me a big hug...he said I was mean to just put the eye in the box...he said he was going to get me back, so I better be on alert... Grin

My happy younger brother with his Bo Bo:

Our family is full of practical jokers...we are always scheming to out do each other and just laugh our heads off each Holiday season re-living some of the best moments ever pulled off....Grin

The bear was carried around and slept with all through his childhood...I am surprised my Mom did not just throw it out...when he found it again as an adult, it was already in really bad shape...at least he has something from his childhood...that is an amazing feat since he was so hard on his stuff as a kid!

ha ha  I am thinking he will now want some more clothes for the dang thing....uh, except for the jeans I promised him...NO!

Oh that is so sweet - that he has such love after all these years for such a childhood treasure.. and that you have such love for him to resurrect it.

Please please please tell me that you found or made a casket-like box for the Bo Bo remnants, just to add that little extra punch to the presentation.  Please tell me that!
