It's a 100% polypropylene, can be washed on gentle, air dried, and will not unravel.
Since Sandra wanted to see if it would work as a substitute for felt for eyes and such on toys, the experimenting began.
|A couple of circles, small and smaller--easy to draw on the fabric.|
|It is easy to cut, easier than felt. I still found it hard to get a nice circle. I could be that I just really suck at this. Should have paid attention in grade school art classes. I always sew mine down which covers a multitude of sins anyway.|
|See double thickness is opaque.|
- Joann's online or in store: You can get a 10-yard bolt of 60-inch wide fabric for $29.99 and who doesn't have a 40 or 50 percent off coupon sitting around. With a 50 percent off coupon, we are talking $15 for 10 yards of 60" fabric or $1.50 a yard. I know some of the Joann brick and mortar stores are selling Oly-Fun, but I don't know for sure that it is being sold by the yard or just the bolt. As I said, though, the "shopping bag" fabric was available by the yard, so I'm thinking Oly-Fun will be, too.
- Walmart has prepackaged Oly-Fun with prices, depending on the color you choose, from $4.73 to $8.97 for 3 yards of 20-inch wide . My black Oly-Fun was $7.59, and the white one was $8.97.
- Three yard of black 60" Oly-Fun at Joann's: $8.97 at full price (don't forget, you get to use a coupon to bring that down 40 or 50% most times) . To get the same amount from Walmart I would need to buy 3 packages of 20" wide, 3 yard long fabric at $8.97 making it a whopping $26.91. No coupons for Walmart.
- Three yards of white 60" Oly-Fun at Joann's at full price: $8.97 (but remember that 40 or 50% off coupon). Same amount at Walmart would be three packages at $7.59 making that $22.77.
