Mouse Pad Cover

Recommended Posts

Don't have a clue where this should go, but this looked like as good a place as any. :)

Admin, feel free to move.

 

Here's how it's done.

 

My mouse pad measures 7-1/4 X 8-3/4, the images are sized for that.

 

I used 3M-77 spray contact adhesive to attach the cover to the mouse pad.

 

If you don't have a blank white mouse pad. You may want to cover your old pad with and blank piece of your old white T shirt. Before you attach your new cover, keeps the bleed thru down.

 

Iron-on transfer paper for your printer.

 

Old white T shirt

 

Follow the instructions for the paper. Remember to reverse the picture so the text is printed backwards

 

I also cut out a frame ,oversized, from stiff cardboard to surround the image to keep it from distorting when it's cut free from the shirt.

 

Coat your old mouse pad with the 77, align over the old pad and stick'er down.

 

Alignment, here's a couple of suggestions.

 

1.Use double stick tape to attach your old mouse pad to a window. This will produce a dandy shadow outline on the padcover to be attached.

 

2. Use about 8 streight pins going around the perimature, near the corner's. With the pointie end up. As you let your cover down over the pins let them come through the edges of the image, the pins will guide the cover down.

 

Once the cover is down press from the center out to the edges.

 

The transfer has an odd slick finish to it but it doesn't seem to bother the mouse. But what would bother a mouse?

 

Anyway, injoy.

Thanks for feeling sorry for me Pete! ;)

 

I'll have to get the wife's permission for this.

Now lets see, around $2,000 dollars for the round trip airfare.

Thousand dollars for spending money food, side trip to Briggin Hill, Cosford RAF Museum, FAA Museum.

Oh, and I dont think the wife will let me go alone. So if she goes it's off to Liverpool to see the Lads birthplace.

There goe's another $2,000 and another 1,000 for spending money.

And around 11 dollars for the mouse pad.

 

So.. total cost of the mouse pad is around $6,011.00. Humm.. on second though forgot the wife's going better kick in another 1,000 ;)

 

Just kidden Pete ~S! Cheers :)

Don't worry about the money you can't take it with you.Come & spend it in the UK

we have lots of very good Air museums & have a very good summer airshow program.Theres no need to bring the wife Liverpools a bit of a dump.

Anyway i'm going to be sad & have a go at making one of your mouse mats,sounds like it could be fun although like banana Bob I'm not verygood with the iron.

 

Cheers bulz

 

All the best Pete :) :) :) :)
