Levels of Teddy Repair
Your treasured toy is unique, and we will tailor the level of repair to suit your budget and preferences. It’s very helpful to know what your expectations are, so the more information you provide on the initial quote request, the more accurate your estimate will be.
Some people want their toy to look like new, while others want only the worst damage repaired, while keeping other signs of age and character. We are also happy to advise on the most essential repairs, in cases where the cost of full repair would be prohibitive.
Generally speaking, repairs involving patching will be visible, though we will blend them with the original material as closely as possible.The technique varies depending on the type of material and the level of damage but either the edges of the hole or the edges of the patch will form a distinct line due to putting one fabric on top of another.
The smoothest type of patch follows the existing seam lines, where pieces of fabric are already joined. The most extreme version of this type of repair is a partial or full re-covering, where a body part or the whole toy is fully covered in new material.
