First, find a mouse pad. This is a freebie from a college visit. Kyle decided not to go to this school, so it's perfect for this project.
Next, find some cute fabric. One that you'll want to see every day, because let's face it, we use our mouse pad a lot! This was in the fabulous sack of scraps my friend Linda sent me. It already has that quilty look I wanted. I'll think of her every time I google! When choosing a fabric, just make sure it's not so light or sheer that the mouse pad will show through.
Break out the spray glue!
Spray well, and smooth out your fabric. Make sure it's stuck down well.
Flip the pad over, and trim off the excess fabric. At this point, you could also fray check the edges if you wish. I didn't. It the fabric gets too tattered, I'll probably just replace it with something new.
Here you go! A made over mouse pad! You're surfing with style now!
