On a whim, I decided to redo a deteriorating old mousepad I was ready to throw out. The only reason I kept it was for the old computer the kids occasionally use. But it was a real eyesore. I would love to not use mousepads at all, but the glass top on our desk, requires it.
So, I followed this tutorial by Emily from Jones Design Company. Super easy. And not perfect at all, but so much better.
