Nice DIY project for computer- & cat- lovers: Keyboard Cat

I have a mostly typical if somewhat slightly dorky desk. It has a phone, a computer, a pencil holder, a slightly suspicious-looking robot, Cthulhu, and a keyboard.

OK, maybe your desk doesn’t have paranoid robots or cuddly gods of the netherworld, but I bet yours has other things. And I bet yours is missing something just like mine... something to rest those weary wrists on! And maybe something to up the geekiness level of your desk to new heights. Trust me, with this project, your desk will be the lord of geek. In a good way, of course. We at Urban Threads only take a positive view on geeks.

Oh, and credit where credit is due: It came from my wife's Machine embroidery forum (all in Dutch, sorry), where she posted the link earlier today.

You're sure the method was embroidery?
Cody's surprise inspection caught this shot...

Passed this on to a lady I work with.  She'll love it and probably have one made by tonight.
It will be much more ergonomic than the real thing.

I'm of good faith, I simply believed what they wrote up there, but your method also looks plausible :-[
