    I second the suggestion. There is no other place like Raja market for the variety in materials, they are whole sale markets, so that's the cheapest you can get. You can feel free to bargain...its all fair.
    But be sure its going to be less than in any other store (like bangle stores) close to your home.

    If Raja market isn't easy for you. These materials are also available in Jayanagar 4th Block Market, but i don't know the names of the shops to help you.

    I would have loved to give you a hint of the prices, but i have done these say about 12yrs ago....so i just can't remember.

    have fun making soft toys!

    Dear Bavya,

    Thanks a lot for ur support... i went to raja market last saturday(13 Aug ) i purcased materials from mahendra novelties...

    the price list as follows....

    full fur- Rs. 325 /-per meter(actually he told 340 rs)
    medium fur (with tiger texture)-Rs400/- per meter
    fibre fill - Rs.140/Kg

    actually i felt the fur was not in quality.... i tihnk we can get good quality in same price...actaully... most of the fibre in the fur are falling down as i start doing my work... just comes in hand if i touch it....

    i made my first ever soft toy ..please visit my album and let me know ur comments.... it will be really helpful for me to improvise my work.. thank you :)

    HI Ramya,
    There is one more store opposite to Mahendra Novelties (don't remember its name), and I found that they have better material (quality wise) and better rate compared to Mahendra Novelties,
