I'm about to play my first roller derby bout and my skate name is "Rumble Kittie".  I have been racking my brain on how to make some cat ears to put on my helmet.  They would need to be tough enough that they wouldn't break or fall off if (when) I get knocked down and they also should not be able to hurt someone if (when) I fall into them.  Any ideas?  I want something better than just felt...

I'd still go with soft materials, but definatel upgrade from felt Smiley There is a neat product called InnerFuse, it's very thick, very stiff innerfacing with heatfusible stuff on both sides (like WonderUnder-ed cardboard almost). You can put satin on one side & a velour or other heat tolerant plush fabric on the other, satin stitch the raw edge in matching thread & voila! ears! I'd either sew velcro to the base & glue velcro to your helmet or just glue them & be prepared to reglue after each match.
