Mouse Pad


Come on, are you even surprised that I am covering another item? I love altering things here and there……aaah, I can’t help myself.


(My kids better watch out, I’m going to start Mod Podge-ing their clothes to their body. They wouldn’t wrinkle that way.)


And I saw a great idea HERE. But they used cork board and I just thought I’d cover my old mouse pad.


I really liked how she used the double sided fusible web. I was thinking about using Mod Podge but the web will keep it a lot smoother. Perfect. :)


Anyway, I just traced around the mouse pad onto the fusible web, cut it out, and then cut out the fabric about a 1/2 inch larger than the mouse pad. Then I ironed the fabric to the mouse pad with the fusible web. It was too simple.


Then I cut the the corners of the mouse pad.


Then I glued the extra 1/2 inch of fabric, to the under side of the mouse pad. Make sure to pull the corner pieces in tight to create a nice rounded edge.


**Fabric glue would work great I’m sure, but all I had was Mod Podge. Yes, it is kind of messy but dries really well and clear (in case you’ve never used this magical stuff!!).


Then you are set.


Turn back over and enjoy your time at the computer……hahaha, like you don’t already enjoy your time at the computer!! ;o)
