So I thought I had better remedy this!
I tried a new filling, and thought I had to tell you about it, and the trick I learned to deal with it...
This is the stuffing:
It is 10€ a bag from Karstadt & should fill about 5 'normal' sized bunnies.
It is tiny little balls of very soft, very hard to control & rather static filling, but it fills beautifully, without any lumps, once you can convince it into the body parts!
I found that dampening my hands and then rolling a handful of the stuffing into a loose ball would make it more compliant, and repeating the dampening with each handful made it easier to work with, and less static.
Here is Hannah's bunny:
I may remove the felt slippers and just leave the ribbons to look like a ballet bunny - the slippers don't look like ballet slippers at all! Whereas the ribbons alone looked rather pretty.
Oh yes, and I forgot to rouge the cheeks!!
