The free mouse pad.

I ripped the top off.

I traced it onto a fabric remnant.

I mod pogged the fabric onto the mouse pad and trimmed the edges.

Rose Wreath

I wrapped an old frame with fabric I bought at a yard sale.  I ripped it into strips and used Fabri-tac to keep it in place.

I made roses out of ribbon and strips of fabric.
