1 Used Mousepad
Fabric of Your Choice (just enough to cover the mousepad) - I found this one at Joann's
Heat Activated Fabric Adhesive Sheet - I used "Lite Steam-A-Steam2" from Joann's
Piping for the edge (optional, and available at Joann's)
Fabric Glue (available at, you guessed it, Joann's)
1. Remove 1 side of backing from the adhesive sheet and place sticky side down to your freshly ironed fabric on the non-printed side.
2. Place your mousepad on the adhesive sheet and trace.
3. Cut the fabric, with the adhesive sheet stuck to it, along the traced shape of the mousepad.
4. Peal the 2nd backing off the adhesive sheet, leaving the adhesive behind.
5. Carefully place your mousepad onto the newly exposed adhesive sheet. Your fabric is now loosely and temporarily adhered to the mousepad.
6. Flip the mousepad so the fabric side is up and iron 10-15seconds in each area across the surface (follow instructions on the adhesive sheets you buy)
7. Trim off any excess material along the edges. Your mousepad should now look something like this. You can stop here if you'd like.
8. To disguise any freyed edges or crooked cuts, add some piping. Glue around the perimeter with fabric glue. Make sure your piping doesn't sit too much above the surface of the mousepad or it will be annoying when you are mousing.
8. Trim any excess material on the piping as needed so your mousepad will sit flat.
Your finished mousepad with piping will look something like this:
