I am in the middle of making a last minute cosplay for a convention I'm going to this weekend! It's a TARDIS dress, and I have absolutely no idea how I'm going to get the door sign on there. I bought felt to use as the windows on the dress and I was thinking of using mod podge to put a print of the sign on the felt and then attaching it to the dress somehow? I've never used it before, but I've seen it works on fabric, just don't know if it would work on felt and the paper. Thanks!

If you have a steady hand, you could try writing it out with a Sharpie. I think that would only work well on wool or blended felt, though. Acrylic felt just might bleed and make a mess Sad

Unfortunately, I don't have anything constructive to suggest for your mod podge idea, but perhaps ask in the papercrafts/scrapbooking area, as those folks glue all kinds of things to other things.

If you want something permanent and washable: What about embroidery? Or fabric/acrylic paint?

If you want something faster: The fabric Mod Podge says you can used it to attach paper to fabric: http://www.plaidonline.com/mod-podge-fabric-8-oz/92/cs11218/product.htm

Normal Mod Podge definitely wouldn't hold up through the washing machine, but I don't know if that's necessary.

Another non-permanent fix, but FAST fix would be hot glue. Just make sure you use the high temp sticks and gun.
