New Legs for Raggedy Andy

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.
