Hollis here. Talk about repurposing! Someone cut up an old mink stole and made this teddy bear. I have to say, I did not find it very cuddly. Old mink is not that soft. And that bear has some major clown feet for paws. I would say I fall on the negative side of enthusiasm for this kind of project. I disdain at turning dead animals into toys, I don’t even like turning dead animals into food all that much. But to each their own! Cheryl here. Ahhh, Granny loved her furry mink memory stuffed Bear!! Look at him, he wants a hug.
