My little one L.O.V.E.S. stuffed animals. She talks to them, tickles them. has us tickle them, gives them kisses, and uses them to "get" us. So imagine how sad I was when one of her favorites split a seam.
This bear has been the victim of many hand-washings which probably caused the split seam. He's looking pretty rough these days. :) It took me a while to get to him, but I finally sewed him up the other day. I'm so glad I have the resources on hand (I know it doesn't take much) and I'm not intimidated by a thread and needle (I would have been a few years ago).
