Thanks, I'll go for the fishing line i think - I'm allergic to horses, so not sure that'd be such a good idea for me!  bear_laugh

Emma don't worry about the horse-hair - I'm allergic too - you have to wash the horse-hair with baby-shampoo anyway because of it's smelling, but than it's really fantastic - please have a look at my "Abigal" who has horse-hair as whiskers and also on the top of her head

Haha that's okay then, thanks for the tip.
Abigail looks gorgeous! The horse hair really does work well, how do you attach it?

Andrea,

That's a fabulous picture/tutorial!  Thank you so much for sharing that technique.  I just made up a rabbit & was thinking I'd like to add whiskers, but wasn't sure about how to apply them.
