This felt mousepad is an easy and fun project. I think they would make great gifts too.
You will need
1 piece of thick wool felt (I used Margo’s Pink)
1 9″ x 12″ sheet of white wool blend felt plus scrap for monogram
1 hole punch
Thread to match wool and monogram
Felt glue (optional)
Scalloped base and rectangle template below
Step 1: Print your monogram. Choose a font and print out the initial so it fits into a 3″ x 3″ space.
See Andies Method for cutting felt for tips on cutting small or complicated bits of felt by hand.
Cut a rectangle of thick wool felt.
Step 2: Stitch letter onto your thick wool felt sheet. I found a running stitch provided the smoothest surface. I have been using this mousepad for over a month now and havent had any issues with the mouse jumping.
Step 3: Cut your scalloped rectangle out of wool blend felt and hole punch the center of each scallop
* this will not work with acrylic felt and if your punch is dull you may have to cut the bottom of each punched hole loose.
Step 4: Attach rectangle to scalloped backing using a running stitch or felt glue.
Step 5: Ohh and AHH over your handiwork…it even makes my work table look nice!
