I’ve got a funny thing against mouse pads. I get that they are handy, necessary even, to effectively use a computer mouse. But I almost always dislike how they look. I’ve gone through many that have been seemed too garish, too plain, too thick and too big and I still haven’t found one I like. So this project is perfect for me because I can make one just the way I want it. And since it’s so easy, I can change it at the drop of a hat to suit a new mood or style at my desk.
Difficulty level: Beginner
Time to complete: 10 minutes
Things to do:
1. On a covered and well-ventilated surface, spray the surface of your craft foam on one side.
2. Smooth the fabric over the foam, working out any bubbles as you go.
3. Allow the glue to dry and then trace a circle or whatever shape you want the mouse pad to be onto the fabric.
4. Cut the shape out for your mouse pad.
