"I got a pack of felt sheets at a discount store for Au #4 (about US $3), and the different colours in the pack had different amounts of stiffness.  I couldn't tell, because the sheets were stacked all together with a card backing, in a…"

"Arrgh.. just received a bunch of 1mm felt from China (eBay) and they are 1 mm, but stiff as the glue they are compressed with. Just a warning! If you need some either find a local store where you can touch the product. Or go to morezmore and pay the…"

"Wow, a lot of ideas!! Thank you so much everyone!! A lot of new things to try right now. I have some "Cinefoil" at home that we used for prop making (animatable tree leaves or magazines) but never for costumes. I'll give it a try…"

"Thanks for that info, Nick. I have just ordered some felt so will give it a go! I have had some success with a cloak using two thin layers of cotton fabric with interfacing between them and a wire on the bottom edge. The fabric becomes stiff enough…"

"Hi Simon, Maybe I should have used the felt for the black cape i made, instead of the regular cotton fabric - it really got out of control when I animated it.  Will have to shoot again, anyway, for other reasons.  It feels…"

"That is excellent, Nick! Did you stitch the sleeve and shoulder seams?  I think this material might be perfect for a cloak I am about to make."

"Good suggestion Hans! I had to make a tailored coat with lapels, and with normal woven fabric you need edges sewn together and turned inside out so they don't unravel.  So the lapels have 2 layers of fabric, plus the edges folded over…"

"The thin felt, 1mm thick, from morezmore.com seems to be a nice fabric for clothing. It comes in a lot of really usable colours and doesn't have the weawing stiffness that scales down so badly. I've not ordered any yet, trying to find it…"

"Your costume is similar to many that I make, and yes, I know the problem! I'm trying to get a black Dracula cape to behave at the moment.  Like most fabrics, the cotton doesn't hang down in 1:6 scale like it would in full size, but…"

"I have tried all the methods you mention, and they all have their uses. For a large flowing cloak I have used interlining to stiffen it and wire round the edges. Interlining is also very good for collars as with your shirt. If you want control you…"

"One way I've seen used for animating textiles is applying a layer of black wrap with textile glue or rubber cement, to the fabric. Black wrap is a thicker black aluminium foil, used in the film industry for blocking out light on the set."

Hardening the fabricHello everybody! I've recently started to learn some dressmaking for puppets, and although I've more or less managed to modify patterns to fit my puppets and get decent results, I'm still having a problem with the stiffness of the fabric.I know there are people who insert wires in the hems, or glue a wire mesh on the inside. I've also read that some people use much more classic sewing methods like interlining or starching to stiffen it.I'm open to try any option, but I'd…See More
