This is a nice little foam mat for small projects. If you're making felted hearts or acorns or little mushrooms, this is definitely as big as you need. Is also a great travel sized mat if you like to take small projects along with you to work on away from home.
This is the mat I recommend for anyone new to felting who doesn't want to invest yet in burlap or wool and is felting on a small scale. All of our sculpting kits (except Fall Leaves) will work fine with this mat.
