Handmade Mouse and Keyboard Rests That Double as Hot/Cold Packs
Posted Feb 19 2009 5:42pm
Check these out…I love, love, love these crafty hand-made wrist rests on Etsy. Some of them double as hot/cold packs so they’re therapeutic too. Many have fun fabrics, some smell like mint or lavender. A great way to make your computer station feel comfortable and relaxing, then ease your neck or wrist pain at the end of the day. And a great way to support crafters trying to make a living doing something they love.
Finding these reminded me that years ago, I tried to sew a neck wrap too. It didn’t work out –it was too big and heavy–so I cut it up, and I ended up with a long rectangle of fabric filled with rice and lavender… This part was too small for a neck wrap, but it turns out to be a perfect wrist rest! I’m very excited to find a new use for it, so I thought I’d share the new look on my keyboard tray:
As you can see, these days I’m using a standard keyboard and Logitech marble mouse…and now this pretty wrist rest. I also adore this cotton print fabric that has pictures and names of english herbs and flowers on them.
I might have to start making a few extra wrist rests and neck wraps, and selling on etsy too, just for fun … stay tuned!
