Lil Pixie left a comment here asking what padding was.  According to Wikpedia
Padding is thin cushioned material sometimes added to clothes. It is often done in an attempt to soften impacts on certain zones of the body or enhance appearance by 'improving' a physical feature.

But in these samples it was to emphasize the shapes, in the first 3 samples instead of using wadding between the top and bottom layers of fabric as is usual in quilting I tried loose threads and wool tops.

Hope this has been of help.

We, in the U.S., call it batting. Hope this helps!
