Fabric Covered Mouse Pad
by Lindsay Wilkes from The Cottage Mama
for Riley Blake Designs
1 mouse pad
1 fat quarter of your favorite woven cotton fabric
Double Sided Fusible Interfacing (Wonder Under or Steam-a-seam Lite 2)
Pick out your favorite fabric and cut a piece that is just a little bit larger than your mouse pad.
Apply double sided fusible interfacing to the backside of your fabric. You can use a product such as Wonder Under or Steam-a-seam Lite 2.
Trace your mousepad onto the paper side of the interfacing.
Cut out the shape that you have drawn. Remove the paper backing and place the fabric with the right side up on top of the mousepad. Using your iron, fuse the fabric to the mousepad.
Once you have fused the fabric to the mousepad, use some Fray Check to go around the edges to prevent the fabric from fraying.
And there you have it! And cute pop of color.......in very little time. Wouldn't these be fun little office gifts? Or perfect for your friends that you know still work on a desktop computer? And when you get tired of yours, just fuse on a new fabric!
