something crafty

My whole desk is a nicer place to be
since my formerly boring mousepad
received a makeover.

It just took a scrap of fabric, some spray glue, scissors, and about 10 minutes.

For how-to's check out the long thread's 10-Minute Mouse Pad Makeover.

And, with the holidays coming,
this could make a nice gift idea as well.

  8. I've been planning to do this to my mouse pad for way too long! Now it's time to do it. And you've given me an idea for a gift for my son. I'm going to buy an inexpensive mouse pad and run a favorite photo of him and his boys onto fabric to cover the mouse pad. He will love it and I will enjoy giving from my photos to something special for his office. Thanks for the encouragement to get going.

  12. This is a great idea....I've always been bothered by the ugliness of mouse pads (I know, I know -- it's a silly peave). But, now I can make my desk coordinate. Thanks.

  15. Very cute! I've been looking in vain for the perfect mousepad, so this might be the solution.

  16. Good idea, I'm going to update my mouse pad at work. It's a little past it's prime/ I have used spray glue and love the ease in which you can easily cover an object and make an even surface. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Cute mousepad idea! I also love your completed owl sweater. I've made some tea wallets for ladies at work and some Christmas table runners made by sewing circles of complementary fabrics together. I learned how to make them at a local fabric store but found a tutorial on the Olfa website. They call it the Cherry Blossom table runner. They are lots of fun to make.
