A Crafty Mouse Pad

After meeting Amanda Blake Soule, better known as Soule Mama, at her book signing in Portland, Sarah and I were both excited to get to work on some of the projects in her book Handmade Home. So after digging through our fabric stash, yard sailing for some vintage fabric, and a quick visit to Jo-Ann's we were ready to get sewing.

The first project - a mouse pad. This was an easy project that went together quickly. It is a great one for using up scraps. I love having a little bit of homemade next to the high tech.

So can you guess whose mouse pad is whose?

Sarah was having so much fun and had a few scraps left over so she decided to make a matching book mark. Very cool! I think the two would make great Christmas gifts or Christmas Craft Fair items. What do you think?
