Last year, Anngela, from Anngela’s Pretty Little Things and I had a craft day. We typically like to meet up quarterly and work on a project together. One of the projects she worked on was revamping her mouse pad. It was a super simple project, and I’ve been wanting to make one ever since. I finally got around to making one this past weekend, and now I’m happy to report that I have a new fabulous mouse pad for my desk at work! I can’t wait until we are done recovering our chair, so that I can use the leftover fabric to recover our mouse pad for the craft room computer. If you follow these four simple steps you’ll have a new mouse pad in minutes!
Old Mouse Pad
Remnant of fabric
Measure your remnant of fabric to match the size of your mouse pad. Then cut a piece of Heat-n-Bond to match the same size your fabric is. Apply the Heat-n-Bond to the fabric according to the directions on the package. Then apply the fabric onto the mousepad.
Next, you’ll want to trim around your mousepad with fabric scissors.
Ta da! Your done. That’s it! Super simple, inexpensive, and an easy way to dress up your desk!
I love the fabric I used. The white apple mouse really pops on the mouse pad.
Here is a side view of what the mouse pad looks like.
