Does anyone have a source for felt used to line jewelry boxes? I would like something thicker than the fabric store variety. Thanks!!

I have been buying my felt linings online at https://thefeltstore.com.

I think most any craft store or fabric store would have it; usually in multiple colors. They probably have it with self stick backing as well.
In case you haven’t considered it, velvet or velveteen fabric makes beautiful jewelry box liners. It is a bit more tedious to install but, well worth the effort IMO. You can also use anti-tarnish fabric (somewhat like felt with a treatment of some kind).

I buy felt at a fabric store and glue it to thin card board. I use 3M77 to glue the felt.

I’m always down for a good flocking.
That’s what I normally use. I feel is easier to do than trying to lay the felt and get it perfectly smooth.

While I prefer flocking, I’ve used this felt on the bottoms of vases and lamps.
