As I am ALMOST finished decorating my office, I found myself in need of a new mouse pad. Of course I scoured the internet searching for a cute mouse pad that would match my decor, but found nothing. I started thinking how hard could making my own mouse pad be? I just needed to find a soft, stable base and then I thought I could add some of the left over fabric I had from when I made the curtains for the room.
So I was off to JoAnn's to see what I could find. It is amazing what you can find if you just walk the isles of a craft store and keep an open mind. Think about using items for things that they weren't necessarily made for. I came across a section with a product called "foamies". They are foam pads that come in a few different sizes and colors. I spotted a small 5x7 pad that was the perfect size for a mouse pad.
