Fabric Covered Clipboard

I had an old clipboard that my son had doodled all over years ago.  Rather than buy a new one, I thought it would be fun to cover it with fabric for my daughter to use for school.
I started with two coordinating fabrics I had in my fabric stash.
One of the fabrics was left over from when I recovered a chair I found in the attic for my daughter's room.
I traced around the clipboard leaving about a 1/2 inch all the way around.
Then using Mod Podge I glued the fabric onto the clipboard.
I then glued the excess fabric onto the back of the clipboard.
I then glued the coordinating fabric onto the back of the clipboard to give it a finished look.
It was at this point I wanted to cut away the fabric using my utility knife to expose the metal mechanism. However, I couldn't for the life of me find my utility knife.  So for now, I am leaving it covered.  It looks fine and still functions as it is supposed to.
Here is the finished product.  Super cute...and my daughter loved it!

Have a great day!
