A tool used most commonly in the felting process to allow the fibres to mesh together with the base fabric. The brush-like mat enables smooth punching with little resistance yet at the same time the bristle length provides the ideal hardness and density for felting. Pair with the needle felting tool. Place the motif over the base fabric and pierce lightly with the felting needle tool. Insert the needles vertically; they should not touch the base of the mat. The fibers will become interlaced, attaching the motif to the fabric beautifully. Used this for crafting, roving felt, needle felting projects. The Clover Felting Mat measures aprox. 3 1/4 x 5 inches (82.5mm x 127mm).
