Bear rug

Submitted by Gerry on 8/14/06 at 10:17 AM. ( )

First bear rug. I got it back from the tanner and just below one of the eyes it has a half dollar size bald spot. Would I dare try to sew in a piece of skin to replace the bald spot or is there a way to plug in individual hairs like they do for wax figures? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

... if you cannot comfortably cut a football shape out and repair the area, then a patch of hair ,the same length would certainly suffice. I do alot of repairs on rugs and this should be an easy fix. The plugging of individual hair idea will not work. Feel free to e-mail me if I can be of any more assistance.
Kindest regards,
