How To Stiffen Felt

  1. Chad says:

    I’m working on a Halloween costume and I want to do this on a head piece (anger from inside out) do you think it would remain stiff in the Florida humidity?

    Perfect! I can’t wait to try this. I went to the craft store and they had no clue how to solve this dilemma of needing stuff felt for a project. Thank you!

    If you stiffen felt, will other pieces of felt still stick to it? I’m assuming not but wondering if you’ve ever tried? Working on my sons busy book and looking for a way to make my felt sheets more “page” like and not so flimsy.

    • No, they won’t stick together. If I come with with another idea I’ll let you know.

      Hi hun
      I work loads with felt. What do you mean ‘will other pieces of felt stick to it?’ Are you looking to treat the felt sheets kind of like sticky board sheets? In that case, no stiffened felt will definitely not stick to other sheets once dry! If you stiffen it properly, it will feel almost like fuzzy cardboard (if that makes sense?).
      For your quiet book, I would suggest use a plain cotton children’s fabric for the pages and stiffen them using fusible interfacing. That is the best way to go. Hope this helps xx
