Making Feather Barrettes

I am making feather barrettes. I need to make some denim very stiff, today. I am hoping to make homemade starch for this part. Any suggestions for making a strong starch?


I'm also wondering (other then dipping the edges of feathers into bleach) how to make multicolored feathers for free?

For stiffening denim: Not knowing how you are using the denim, you might try painting the wrong side with a light coat of Elmer's Glue. Maybe iron on interfacing could work as it comes in many weights.

For the feathers, have you thought of using liquid Rit dye? Acrylic paint like Cerama Coat?

Go to Joanne Fabric Store or Fabricland and ask them for the special iron on backing that does this, I can't remember the name of the product but I know it is available.
Cheers, Moe
