Let’s make a leather mouse pad on the cheap and in three easy steps! You’ll need scrap of leather, an old mouse pad, spray adhesive, a rotary cutter, a long ruler or quilter’s ruler, chalk and a self healing mat. Spray a generous layer of adhesive to the top of the mouse pad and lay the leather on top. Take care to press and smooth the leather into place. Using a ruler and chalk, mark out how you want to cut your mouse pad. Following your chalk guidelines, cut your mouse pad out, using a rotary cutter, ruler, and self healing mat. You may need to pass over each cut several times to slice all the way through. Voila!
