I'm looking for a really great sized close-up pad that is long lasting and very resilient. I would also like the fabric to be made of velvet or of a velvet-like material. Any reccomendations by brand name/maker would be greatly appreciated. :D

i ordered my close up pad about 2 weeks ago from Penguin and im pretty happy with it. its advertised as 17 inches, by 13 inches ... but mine is 20 by 16 :D its a fairly big pad with a nice felt surface and a rubber bottom to prevent it from slipping and they are only $11.95. i got mine in black by the way.... you can see a demo of the pads here: http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=137


PS - I noticed your from Harlingen, im in Brownsville :D

I made a small size taking a 12 x 9 foam piece bought at Walmarts and glueing a piece of felt onto it. Total cost about $1. Color dark blue.

We had a big mouse pad in our basement, so I used that. It works great.

My favorites are my Bazar de Magia and my Vincenzo de Fatta pads. Both are excellent. :)
