I bought a roll of it specifically for this purpose from Wal-Mart when I used up the leftovers from putting in carpet in my husband’s truck several years ago. It’s like felt and easy to cut with regular scissors. I lost the label from the roll so I can’t tell you the brand. The Wal-Mart in my area doesn’t sell it any more. I did find something similar from Online Fabric Store. Here’s the link.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.
