I made a little mouse wrist rest, because my arm started to hurt with the new setup at work.  I saw one at Joann’s of all places, for $7.00.  “I can make that!” I thought.  Only this one had nice little rubber dots on the back to keep it from sliding all over the desk.  Hmmm. Ok, I’ll live without that part, I thought.

Well, lo and behold, I’m at Mary Jo’s today and there is the fabric with little rubber dots on it.  I got half a yard ($3.75), in case I decide to make more, or there is a national emergency that requires duct tape and fabric with little rubber dots on it.  I’m covered on both accounts.

Anyway, I sought out some cute sewing themed fabric and found a bolt of the “Keep Calm and _____ On” print.  It’s pretty cute, there’s a lot of sayings, but the size of the wrist rest, only the one showed up perfectly…So of course I had to make it the quilting one. 😀  I also got 1/2 a yard of that, also $3.75.  So By now I could have bought the one at Joann’s. 😀  None the less, I was all in by this point. At home I had the little plastic beads that go in bean bags left over from another project.  So I just used some of those leftovers.

Here’s a pic of the finished product.  If you would like the pattern, drop me a note in the comments and I’ll come back and add it here.
