Fluffy Bunny and Paper Furniture

It's normal for me to put down what I'm doing and change projects like a flash when I come up with an idea, and I did it again yesterday. I came across these lovely resin rabbits while shopping and decided I'd try to apply fur to them. They are a bit big for 1/12th but I can use a rabbit for my Easter display.
 
The white rabbit is 1 3/4" high and I started with him as I had some white fur trim I've had since the 80s.
It's Paton's acrylic and cotton fur trim and I don't think they make it any more. I'd like some in other colours now that I've found a use for it! I cut the fur from the backing and glued on in small pieces overlapping the rows.  
.
I gave him a hair trim as I worked and then finally gave him a neat haircut. Here he is after his makeover!
There were other animals which are a little too big but the dogs are perfect so I got these too!
Now, I'll show you my 1/24th paper furniture, hidden at the back of my cupboard, I found a little box full that I made with Oly during one of our club days. We found the patterns on the internet. I was keen to see whether I could make a whole dollshouse from paper. Here are some kitchen units
 The bedroom chair is really strong and I love the cabinet with opening drawers!
 These are the office items.
Some nursery furniture and a little dress.
My favourite paper sofa, upholstered in silk!
I've changed my mind about making a paper dollshouse but it was fun to make these few things.
Thank you for stopping here, I hope you're having a good weekend,

  4. The Bunny becomes so fine and soft, a good idea. Some of the furniture you can not see is made of paper. The sofa is so fine.
