Day 14 – DIY Fabric Mouse Pad


010b7d34dc39dbfcb3c580be900dfe6aa0a28a3827So here’s my ugly mouse pad.  I’ve used it for years and it works beautifully, it’s just not attractive.

Using instructions from this tutorial, I found a piece of fabric in my stash, used Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue and went to work.

I ironed my fabric to remove all the creases, generously applied the glue to the top of the mouse pad and lay it on top of the wrong side of the fabric.  This glue dried fast so I quickly flipped the fabric over and smoothed out the glue to make sure there weren’t any bubbles or wrinkles.

After waiting a few minutes, I flipped the mouse pad back over, trimmed the fabric to about 1″ from the edge of the pad and glued the excess underneath the mouse pad.







I wasn’t sure how my mouse would work on fabric, but it works great.  I’m really pleased with how it turned out.








Until tomorrow,






Keeping in mind I know nothing about crafts, I was wondering if you could cover my bowl with fabric.  It’s looking a bit scruffy.
