Inspired by Alice in Wonderland
Winnie-the-Pooh before (left) and after the restoration (right). During his makeover, four worn areas were treated and protected with nylon Maline net (including two front paw pads, his left foot paw pad, and his snout), several areas of lifting embroidery on the nose and left foot were stitched down with cotton thread, a protruding yarn from a previous repair under the right arm was fixed, and the plush on Pooh’s bottom was gently steamed and fluffed using, among other things, a microspatula.
