Fat Quarter Tuesday Project

No Sew Fabric Mouse Pad!

Today’s Fat Quarter Tuesday is so simple and a fun way to brighten up your office! Follow along with our tutorial below on how to make your own custom mouse pad. 🖱


Supplies:

  • Mod Podge
  • Fabric
  • Cork
  • Brush

First start with a round piece of cork board we cut ours with a 7” diameter.

Next you will cut a fabric piece larger than the circle any size will do as long as it is larger than the cork. Later you will trim so no need to be precise. You can use any fabric but woven fabrics are easiest to work with. We chose to have this fun design we made in our free online creator tool printed on our Faux Linen Slub.

Next you will take your mod podge and brush and apply a thin even layer all over the top of the cork.

Then you will lay the fabric right side up onto the mod podge side of the cork smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles.

Now you will apply another thin even layer of mod podge on top of the fabric making sure to get the edges very well and let dry according to the mod podge instructions 15-20 minutes.

Once the mod podge is dry you will trim the excess fabric around your cork. The mod podge helps keep the fabric from unraveling so no need to finish the edges, you are all done! You can even make the circle smaller and make custom coasters for your home, sew many options! 😊😊


Don’t forget we are celebrating all color this month with 25% off all orders throughout the month of September on any fabric in any color just use code: bows25 at checkout.
