- I have had great success with plastic needle point canvas as a
"stiffener" or "interfacing" for ears/hats, etc. It's
washable/dryable/durable and easily cuts and sews to any shape. I have
covered with both stretch fabrics and woven. Have also used various
thicknessness of uphoustery foam. It all depends on the look you want.
For tails, my favorite is a combination of fabric base shape then
hot-glue (can also be sewn) wig hairin appropriate area. Most hair
supply stores (i.e. Sally's) and many on-line stores carry fabulous
variety of colors of long straight or curled hair used for hair
extensions. You want the kind that is "railroad" or bound at the top
edge--not the loose hairs used in glue-in or sewn-in extensions.
Have fun with your project!
