I’m sure most people don’t even use a mouse pad anymore. Kids under 5 probably don’t even know what a mouse is. But I’m a bit old fashioned and still have a corded mouse (gasp!) next to my computer keyboard. It is a cheap Dollar Tree mouse pad, just plain black and boring.
I just went through my fabric stash and kept some of my favorite scraps for those someday sort of projects. Well, someday was today. My desk was just crying out for a very cute and stylish owl mouse pad. So I made one…
Super easy to do! All you need is some Wonder Under fusible web (I buy mine by the yard at the fabric store), some fabric, a mouse pad, a pencil and an iron.
First trace your mouse pad onto the paper side of the fusible web. Cut it out as close to the edges of your tracing as you can.
Lay your fusible web on the fabric where you would like it to be paper side up. (It’s very nice that you can see through the web so you know where your pattern on the fabric is.)
Iron fusible web onto the fabric according to the directions.
Cut it out and let cool completely.
Iron the fabric to your mouse pad according to the directions on the fusible web.
Now you’re ready to click away on your stylish new totally old-fashioned mouse pad!
