Meet my dad's old Andy. I'm guessing he is from the late 1930's. He has held up quite well except for his legs. The "socks" portion are rotting away, revealing a hard stuffing that looks like dryer lint. Time to repair him.
I found some strong fabric, and added red ribbon to look as close to the original as it could. (The old leg is on the left of the picture.) I hand stitched the new fabric over the old to help hold it all together.
Here he is with his new legs and his original clothes etc. I think he's happy with the repair.
