I did plan a post on covering a mousepad, since it is quite simple and fun. So, here it is:
Start with a mousepad. (Genius post, huh?) And some fabric, and some fusible web trimmed to about 1/2 inch larger than the mousepad on all sides.
Iron the fabric nicely. Using a hot iron (no steam), iron the fusible web onto the fabric. Then, iron it some more. You want to get a nice bond going here. Then, when it is cool, pull the paper backing away from the fusible and center your fabric onto the mousepad, on the smoothest side. Iron. Iron again. Iron once more, paying particular attention to the edges to make sure they are really stuck to the pad.
If you like Key Lime, this is the cake for you. And for Richard, our boss, who does indeed like Key Lime. The recipe is on this beautiful blog.
I seem to always forget to take a picture of the inside until all the extra has been wrapped up to send home. Please excuse the plastic.
No promises about future posts -- know that there will be some, and think of the "when" as a big surprise. I have several quilts in the works, some embroidery, some knitting. And I've been reading. So watch out.
