I mentioned previously that we’d set up a computer for the twins.  Well silly mummy bought the wrong kind of table and the mouse wouldn’t work on the surface of it. 

So mummy got to work to fix the situation and made a mouse pad.

What you need:

  • Felt
  • Mod Podge
  • Brush
  • Rubber – or in my case an old rubber placemat

How to make:

Sketch the shape you want and cut it out.

Place it on top of the felt and cut around it.  Using mod podge (which I found worked best if left to dry overnight) glue your shape to the rubber mat … as I mentioned, I used an old placemat that we no longer use.

Once dry cut around the shape again.  Here I glued extra felt pieces on to make eyes for my whale.
