Monogrammed wool felt mouse pad.

Scallop and eyelet felt mousepad tutorial

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

scalloped rectangle template

felt monogram

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.

In Praise of Pink

9 Mar

Pink seems to be one of those colors people love or hate. I fall firmly into loving pink category so you can imagine how shocked I was to learn that it doesn’t exist. That’s right according to physics pink does not exist. …well pink light anyway. Say What?

Can’t argue with physics right…

Although I am only on step 4 of the 7 stages of grief I thought I would share some of American Felt and Craft’s “hidden gradurure” colored felt in praise of pink!
