One of my friends asked me to make a hat that looks just like this

I can get the rest of the hat no problem. I just can't seem to figure out how to make the tassels stand up like that.
What do you guys think? Huh
I was thinking fabric starch. don't know if it would be the desired look though.

It looks like those bits are braided, right? I would think if you braid with enough strands and tightly enough, they would be able to stand up on their own.

Seconded, tightly braided dry cotton should behave like that on its own

thanks ladies! I hadn't tried it before so I didn't know if it would stay up like that.
 Cheesy Good to know that it would.
