Mn.. could you explain how felt would be hard to work with.. :/ I don't think there are any fabric stores near me..
It's not the stain, it's the Cova Color. Here is a link from their online store:

It won't cover as well as Angelus but it does work if you don't have access to Angelus. It took me about 4 coats of the gold to cover my boots.


Felt just won't have any give and it also pills fairly badly over time. You might be able to try a thrift store or even a cheap department store and try to find some t-shirts in the right color. A large size should give you enough fabric to cover two shoes.
