Made this mousepad and pocket tissue holder for my boss Julie's 50th birthday. The mousepad is reversible and has the same fabric as tissue holder on the backside.
I followed this tutorial at More Misadventures to make the mousepad but added the embroidered name and a layer fusible fleece to give the pad some body. The leaf fabric is designed by Amy Schimler for Robert Kaufman Fabrics and its from the Animal Party Too collection. I love it.
Here is the backside of the mouse pad. This fabric is called Save Energy and is by Michael Miller, I went bananas when I just stumbled upon it while searching for something else online. This fabric totally represents what we do so I thought it was beyond perfect.
Here is a closeup of the tissue holder. I followed this tutorial at Skip to my Lou for it and it was super easy. You can't tell in this picture but the inside of the holder is lined in a coordinating plaid fabric. I wish I had thought of top stitching the edge of the tissue holder to match the mousepad but since I made the tissue holder first, it's too late now.
Hope you are having a great Tuesday, thanks for stopping by!
