She asked if I could fix him. She is 9. You just don’t say no to that shit. So I found some thread that matched and threaded up my needle!
I got that bit at his leg fixed up and as I looked him over, I kept finding more little splits in more of his seams. Probably 3-4 small places in all. The leg was by far the worst though. I actually had to make a little tuck in the fabric because rather than the seam splitting, the fabric had torn.
Needless to say, she was tickled to death to have him back, good as new.
