Restoration of Fluffy The Rabbit (Fluffy has a home)

Fluffy has been loved for many years and he was getting tired.  When Fluffy got here he needed help to sit up for his "before" photos.  He was getting threadbare, he had some holes, he had patches, and his stuffing had been greatly compacted over time. 

I had to take Fluffy apart to create a pattern for new parts.  It was a little scary.  I put a lot of stuffed animals together but I never take any apart. 

Domo was horrified.

Great care was taken with Fluffy the whole time.

Domo did everything he could think of to make Fluffy feel better.

It was not long before Fluffy had a new body, new stuffing, and new bow.  Fluffy feels like a young rabbit again.  He can sit up tall all by himself now.  Fluffy is ready to go home and be loved for many more years.

The tail was also made from t-shirt material.
