Mouse Pad Makeover.

Yesterday was a VERY rainy day. I love the rain so I wasn't bothered a bit, but whenever it rains I get the crafting itch. I just HAD to make something. A mouse pad makeover did the trick.


::Materials::
Mouse pad
Pretty fabric
Fray check
Heat n' Bond
Fabric scissors

::Directions::
  1. Lay fabric over mouse pad and cut in the general shape of the pad. Be sure to leave 1" excess fabric around edges.
  2. Lay fabric right side DOWN [the side with the print] and place Heat n' Bond over it with the paper side up.
  3. Iron over surface for about five seconds until it's completely bonded.
  4. Remove paper backing from fabric.
  5. Place fabric on mouse pad right side UP.
  6. Iron over fabric for about 1 minute or until bonded.
  7. Trim excess fabric with good sewing scissors.
  8. Use Fray Check to prevent fabric fraying.
A seriously cute little makeover in 8 simple steps!

Happy Crafting!

  7. I was actually going to give you guys a Napoleon Dynamite mousepad that also serves as a doodlepad, but I guess some other lucky duck will be the recipient of that now. :)
