How to make a Mouse Pad

Kim, Faye, Darina and I went to an Digitising Seminar last week, and one of the requirements was to bring your own Mouse Pad.   

Faye shared the Mouse Pad she made and started a trend!!


How styley did the KK Girls look with our gorgeous Mouse Pads (and bags)

Darina made the bright set for Kim, the Black and White set for me. and Faye made her beautiful Purple set

I missed the e-mail, but luckily Darina was onto it and made me one - Thank you Darina!!

So how can you make a Mouse Pad?

The girls have used our

In the hoop Rectangle Coaster 

As Darina says "I have made mine with fusible fleece as the wadding and then just putting the vinyl in the centre section. Very easy to do and really no different to make any normal coaster or placemat"

The design set includes full photo step-by-step photos - If you are new to this style of design, watch Kay's 

How to make our Free In the hoop Sewing Mug Rug 

which uses the same techniques

As you can see below, there has been a variety of materials used.

The majority have been made with vinyl for the middle piece. although Judi has done the opposite with vinyl on the outside and fabric in the middle
