Please note: the felt is made by Dana Biddle and her team and they live very far away from our studio. So if we run out of the felt and they have to make it for you,  it may take 3 or 4 weeks for your kit to be packaged and sent to you via our very reliable international courier.

1) Handmade (each piece is unique) felted background in rich shades of beautiful blue: approximately 51 x 27 cm (20 x 10.6 inches)
