This week’s Scrappy Saturday project is a fabric mouse pad. I came up with this idea because I actually needed one. Necessity is the mother of all invention, right? For whatever reason, my mouse was not tracking right on my desk – my husband says it’s the sheen of the coating on the wood. I wasn’t sure if that was the case, but I did know a mouse pad would probably solve my issue. I did some research and found a few tutorials on how to recover an old pad, and how to make one out of cork board. Unfortunately… I didn’t have an old mouse pad, nor did I have cork board….so, I used what I had on hand:
>low-loft batting or fusible fleece
>some rubber shelf liner
>a piece of paper (yup…you’ll see)
I wanted to try something new for delivering this tutorial. This week you can watch my tutorial on the slideshow below AND you can download or print
I think this is a neater, and nicer way of presenting my tutorials. Let me know if you like the new format. Hopefully I will have time to do this for future posts….
This mouse pad took me about 20 minutes.
