This is the costume I want to replicate



I can't figure out what I should use for materials, though. It doesn't look like felt or fleece at all, yet the edges are so clean and don't fray. (Specifically the leaves)
Any tips? I can't see served edges. And I've used fray check before and the edges always turn out stiff and shiny.

Looks a bit like suedecloth to me. It doesn't really fray, and would look a lot like this. Finding the color in question would be tricky, though. Suedecloth around here tends to run darker in color.

I'm also not entirely sure it's not satin-stitched along the edges. The veins of the leaves look drawn on, but they could also be satin-stitched, and if you look closely around the edges of the leaves, there's an outline there, too.  Could be a cute costume, though. I hope you had good luck with it!


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

If you look at the hat brim, it looks like two layers of fabric that are seamed and turned.  I draw attention to that part because you can see that the fabric doesn't lie smooth and flat, and is a bit shiny.  I think it's a knit fabric.  (And they should have topstitched that edge to make it crisp.)

If you blow the picture up (ctrl + ), you can see that the edges of the leaves are a bit darker and a little shiny; they may have used paint or glue or fray check.  The leaf veins are painted with the same stuff.

If you blow it up too much, you can see he has a mole on his arm.  Smiley
