Last weekend I made a little bunny very happy. I have an antique and well-loved stuffed bunny who was in desperate need of some attention, but I’d been putting it off because I was worried about how fragile she might be.
Her stuffing had completely disintegrated and she was looking deflated and very sad indeed. Fortunately her fur was in very good shape – a bit stained, but otherwise fine. And when I opened her up I discovered that she’d been filled with some kind of horrible orange foam that was turning into dust (plus a clump of cotton wadding).
So I completely emptied out the old stuffing and carefully handwashed her fur and let her dry. Then I restuffed her with some nice new polyester stuffing (made in Belgium no less).
And now she is as good as new!
