I've never gotten 'quality' fake fur the stuff I get from the craft store is 1 scratchy on the back so you may want to either double it so it's fur on both sides or just use another peice of fabric. But 2 I don't find is shedding only when you cut it then you get bits from the edges. some fake fur is heavy too
most fake fur like real fur will stay up if you just brush it the wrong way X3 but you could also use spray glue rather than hair spray
... And to answer that question "Yes I live here and have nothing better to do "
