Mouse Muffler

Fall has arrived in Oregon and there’s a chill in the air. My hands get cold easily so I made this mouse muffler to keep my hand warm while I’m surfing online this coming winter. If you live in an especially cold climate you can line it with fabric to make it even warmer.

Note: The mouse muffler was specifically designed to work with a track ball mouse (ie the ball’s on top). If you have a mouse with the little ball on the bottom this pattern can still work for you. You’ll need to trim a mouse pad down to slide into the muffler for your mouse to rest upon.
