The material is called a “no fray” fabric, you can buy it at most fabric stores.  It will have somewhat more of a weave evident.  Getting it in the slot is virtually impossible, add about an inch and a half to length and glue it one full round.  All that said, it’s a bear getting it perfectly even, so the next best thing is….
