    Could this list be used to make a quadsuit?

    It can, but I haven't had much time and luck finding tutorials on making quad-suits for the front leg areas.. If you know of any sites, or find any, link them here.

    Oh, just as a brief FYI, it's possible to find faux fur in Craft World in the UK (Northern Ireland, at the very least, has one in Belfast). I didn't see it on the list and just thought I'd tell you.
