Wednesday's Wonder: Reversible Mousemat.

My Mousemat is years old and was just a plain boring thing to begin with.
After several years of use it is just a dirty, plain, boring thing.
I wanted to spruce it up a bit and this is what I came up with:



First you need a Mousemat
(mine was REALLY dirty... so I took off the top fabric so you couldn't see it in the picture! haha!)



Grab a piece of fabric and cut so that it is big enough to cover the pad.
 (I chose white so that I could stamp on it but you can use any colour or pattern).



If you are stamping words on, do it now.



Using your glue gun, pull the fabric tight and glue down on the back.



Trim to get rid of excess fabric.
 I know it doesn't look pretty right now but that is ok.


Cut out a circle of fabric for the back the same size at the Mousepad.



Using your glue gun, stick down on the back of the mousepad.



Now you have a mousepad which is reversible and way cuter
(and cleaner) than before!




Enjoy.
