If it is polyester, it might work since it is plastic and would "melt" into its shape. I don't think it would work with cotton. You could spray fabric stiffener on it and probably and get the shape, but I doubt it would hold up if it got damp. But I've never tried, good luck! If it works, let us know!!

What if you dip the fabric strips into liquid starch and the wrapped it around a dowel to dry?

I think Wendy is right, poly would probably work but Cotton would relax quickly over time!

What about stiffen stuff? I don't use it but would it work to wrap the fabric, spray and then let it dry...no oven involved....
keep us posted and let us know.

Congrats to Adri for another win. We have four more pageants coming up. I never thought I would get into these things, but they are so much fun!
