Why did you choose this?
Can this material be heat pressed?
is this product good for custom mouse pad for students to create?
BEST ANSWER: No it wouldn't work for that. Foam is really squishy & mouse pad wouldn't move well on it. Try scuba maybe, but not spacer.
I want to make a foam keg for a dachshund to wear as a costume, will this work?
BEST ANSWER: I think you would be able to use this for a costume, it is easy to work with.
Can this foam fabric be spray painted? If so what product would work?
Would this work to make rub and back padding for a youth baseball shirt?
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what rub and back padding is but if it's like a catcher's padding I would say no. It's much softer than the padding on a catcher's vest. It's very soft. If you push on pleats on a car seat this would show how soft it is. I mean the pushing just enough to create a dimple not pushing to where you're compressing foam or springs on an older vehicle.
can you cut this foam easy ? How hard is it to cut?
BEST ANSWER: This foam is very easy to cut with a knife or scissors.
If I wanted to use this foam as the base of a costume for my 11 year old son (he would wear it like a coat with two arm holes), how many yards do i need to order (consider length to be 4 feet width 3 feet?)?

Looking for very squishy padding to sew leather onto for saddle seats for horse back riding. Would this work?
BEST ANSWER: I believe it would work for saddle seats. I bought this foam to put over the top of a motorcycle seat before putting the new fabric on it. I also ride horses so I understand what you are needing to do. I would recommend it if it’s the same clothbacked foam I purchased.
Lookkng for fabric bonded to closed-cell fiam padding, to make vehicle cover in area prone to hailstorms. Is this fabric durable enough for sewing/glueing, and “outdoor wear and tear”? Has this foam been used for any similar protective purpose?

Could I use these as an inner sole (hidden between layers) in handmade slippers? Would it be good to cut to shape to be walked on ? Can you wash it?
BEST ANSWER: You can use this foam in between layers for an inner sole of a slipper. However, it is not washable because the foam will soak up the water and eventually deteriorate.
Does this work for auto upholstery backing?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that is what I use it for.
Can this be used to make a koozie?
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't think so. It's not neoprene like most koozies. It doesn't have the strength needed to stand up to multiple use or have any thermal properties. It's basically thin foam with a T-shirt type material glued on the back to keep thread from pulling through the foam.

You may receive a different color than pictured but it could easily be covered with a fabric of your choosing to suit your style.
