DIY Leather Mouse Pad

Easy DIY Leather Mouse Pad

I recently bought a wireless mouse to help me edit photos, but I totally forgot about a mouse pad!  I went to a local store to purchase one and couldn’t believe it when the cheapest one was $15!  My frugalista self marched right out of there, determined to make my own mouse pad!  On the drive home, I get my best ideas when driving, my leather stash popped into my head.  I figured leather would be the right texture and easy to use the mouse.  I was right!

Step 1 – Pick your material, I chose a tan colored leather I had in my craft box, and get your tools: scissors, template, and chalk.
