Mouse Pad Mania

I love making these mouse pads. Everything about the process is so colorful. Making the envelopes, choosing fabrics, cutting and fusing and finally photographing. I love seeing a stack of them on my worktable, cheery bits of fun waiting to liven up someone’s desk!

The fusing process is laborious and quite smelly so I can’t wait until I can afford a home steam press! That will also make the fortune cookie assembly much easier as well. I’m working my way through my “Large Purchases” list. The first was my craft canopy. Next is the steam press. Then comes my own website.

But I digress! Here are a few brand new mouse pads, coming very soon to my Etsy shop. I'm just not ready for summer to be over so they are bright and colorful.
