I have just purchased a zebra skin from Africa.  It is the skin only,
with no backing.  It is tanned and ready to use.  Most zebra skin rugs
I have seen have a felt backing either glued or sewn on.  I understand
that the felt backing helps the rug lay flat, keeps it from being too
"flimsy", prolongs its life, and generally helps provide the typical
zebra skin rug look.

I want to apply a felt backing to my zebra skin myself, and need some
information.  What sort of felt should I use, how thick should it be,
and where can I buy it?  I prefer the glued look, rather than sewn,
and I don't have the equipment to sew anyway.  Is gluing a good
option, what kind of glue should I use, how should I apply it, and
where can I buy it?  Does it seem reasonable that an amateur such as
myself could attempt such a project and achieve a good result?

Help would be greatly appreciated!
