Dear treasured friends and family of the hospital, we wish you a blessed new year.
In this article, we will discuss about the methods we can use to repair fur loss in soft toy, plush, stuffies and soft toys. Do take a look!
Method 1: Thread Fill
Thread fill involves filling up the places where the fur has fallen off with thread. Take a look at the example below!
This method is usually used when there is a large difference between base fabric color (white in this case) and the fur color (yellow in this case)
The miniature threads sewn in helps to alter the color difference for a better look without any possibility of color leakage (unlike the coloration method).
This is also good for cases where the base fabric is not dye-able.
Of note however, is that this method does not recover any of the lost fur.
Method 2: Fur Overlay
This method is great when the texture of adequate fur is important, and it is not at an important facial location. An overlay can be understood as a wrap (like a car wrap) that is beautifully wrapped over the original spot for a seamless finish and also helps to protect the inner layer from further damage.
Method 3: Full Section Fur Replacement
This method can be used to smoothly replace a damaged spot with a nice hand feel (single layer) but needs to be an a location with no specific soft toy characteristic (no distinctive feature or shape requirements)
Method 4: Partial Section Fur Replacement
This method is used to partially mend a specific damaged spot with fur issues. The color match and transition may not be as smooth as preferred.
Method 5: Basic Clean and Refluff
Sometimes, some basic cleaning and refluff is all you need
Method 6: Tightening
Sometimes, its really not as bad as it seems. Just a little tightening will do :3
