What is a good homemade mouse pad?

Cork is a perfect base for any mouse pad, so just cut your piece and then go decorate it: paint it, attach paper or a piece of fabric or your favorite photo. You can also make a fabric mouse pad, just take thick fabric and cut it to your favorite shape; you can create a fun piece like a mountain or whatever you like.

How do you make a fabric mouse pad?

First, align your fabric pattern on your upside down mousepad, then trim about an inch of fabric all around. Next, trim a piece of fusible web to the size of your mouse pad, and fold your fabric over the webbing. Use your hot iron and a moist washcloth to bond the fabric to the pad.

Can you build your own mouse?

Building your own mouse from the ground up is a great way to get yourself an input device that perfectly serves your needs. We've seen others work in the field, with custom trackballs and breakout boards for sensors. If you've got your own cutting edge build, be sure to let us know!

Can I use paper as mouse pad?

A couple sheets of paper makes the mouse responsive, but hard to move due to the mouse sticking to the paper. Getting an actual mousepad is usually hard, because I move around with my laptop a lot and don't want to always bring a mousepad with me.

Is it bad to not use a mouse pad?

No, you can't really damage it, but most of them won't work if used on the wrong surface. They will be very inaccurate. In the old days, when the mice used a ball, it was almost impossible to use the mouse without a pad, because the ball needed a smooth surface to glide along seamlessly.

What can you use as a makeshift mousepad?

Wax Paper. Wax paper is a simple alternative to most mouse pads. It's much cheaper than some other alternatives, but it will also get dirty and wear out over time. They may not be suitable at first glance, but due to their smooth surface, then can be a good mouse pad alternative.

Is fabric good for a mouse pad?

Material. In general, soft mouse pads are best for roller ball mice and hard mouse pads are recommended for optical mice. Soft mouse pads are typically made from neoprene or some other rubber material with a bonded fabric surface. This offers a cushy, nonslip surface that is inexpensive, comfortable, and effective.

How do you iron a mouse pad?

You could place in the sun (or somewhere else to warm it), then place heavy objects on it for a bit. Time and use will also help flatten it.
