How to Make Hand Printed Mouse Pads

created at: 06/10/2010

Here at ManMade, we're always on the lookout for craft and home décor projects that’ll work from a masculine perspective, but to be honest, the stuff that gets us the MOST excited are gender-neutral projects – you know, those that can be customized to suit any taste, and are accessible to anyone.

So, with that in mind, here’s an easy way to whip up a hand-printed mouse pad that avoids all the effort and special equipment of silkscreening, thus fitting another of my favorite crafting categories – quick and easy. If you’re not in need of a mouse pad, no worries – this technique can be translated to all sorts of media, empowering you to put anything you can write, draw, or type onto any surface you please.created at: 06/10/2010     

I made these for a guest post for the amazing Design*Sponge, so grab one of the PDF patterns on our download page, then to D*S for the full instructions.
