(Balding Teddies)

Teddy with Waistcoat It is sad but true that as we get older we lose our hair, and the same is true for Teddies.  It is impossible to put the fur back, it is very unlikely to be able to match the existing fur, same pile length, same colour and same antique look.
The best solution is to give the Teddy a waistcoat to prevent him from getting a cold on the chest and to spruce up his image.

A waistcoat can be made in any colour scheme, with or without lining, and can even feature his initial embroidered on his pocket.
