Why are free mouse pads always so unsightly? Weird right? Well, here is a solution to that problem!
Here are my supplies! Spray Glue, Scrap fabric of choice and Ugly Mouse Pad. I suppose my mouse pad isn't really that hideous, but it still matches nothing in my house.
The next step was super hard to take pictures of. I really just spray glue the crap out of the mouse pad and slapped the fabric down. Then I used my fingers to smooth and shmush out all the wrinkles.
Then I used some super sharp scissors to trim the edges.
Honestly I could have stopped here. If the fabric shrinks away from the edges just lift the fabric and respray.
This part I did more to see if I could than anything! I put paper under the pad to remove the traction.
Then I used a fancy stitch on my sewing machine to tack down the edges! Honestly... you don't have to do this. I used an embroidery needle and knew I had sewn through thicker things before. But it did add a nice touch to the edges!
Then tear away the paper and Done! It adds a nice touch. I probably should have cleaned up the paper from the edges a bit better. It does look a little shabby, but... I had get the kids form school and... you all love me despite my shabbiness! Right?
