I must have had way to much time on my hands today, cause I got this crazy idea to give my coffee a mustache this morning. I thought you all might like to know how I did it. This should make for a good time and a few laughs along the way.
Here is what you need::
iron on heat n bond
Fabric 8th's in your choice. Scraps should work too.
Templates (see below)
Pick your perfect moustache!
Click on the images to enlarge them.
I found these templates on google with a quick moustache search.
Cut out your desired Stache!
using the glue stick adhere the paper moustache to a piece of cardboard .
Now cut out the moustache from the cardboard.
This will be the template you use to trace your moustache.
Following the direction of the heat and bond iron a piece of fusible iron on heat and bond to the wrong side of your desired fabric.
Now on the back side of the fabric where the white shows, trace the moustache onto the fusible.
Now cut out the moustache and remove the paper backing from the heat and bond.
This mug rug can be any size you wish, but mine is approximately 10x8.
sandwich just like a quilt, and them quilt around the moustache being careful not to run over it. I used a light thread on top and black in the bobbin to match perfectly. After the rug is quilted, take a straight stitch in thread that matches your moustache, ans sew along the edge of the piece.
Now bind and finish... Violla~
Cookie Stache :)
You can make any kind of moustache you want. Now when you reach for your coffee, it will never be a bad day. These are sure to give you a giggle.
If you make one I would love to see it! feel free to post it in the Sew-Fantastic Flickr Group
