A little something for the men

I saw this super-cute idea here, and I thought, "hey, I could make that!"

I was needing something to go with the shaving kit I bought for my hubby's birthday, and since it's the only kind of mustache my man will be allowed to sport (I told him, if he ever grows a mustache I will shave my head. So far it's working.), I figured it would be a fun project to tackle!

Here's the details:

~You will need~
1 hand towel (I found mine at Wal-Mart for 2.99)
a small piece of felt (for whatever color 'stache you want)
a sewing machine, or nimble fingers
a mustache template (I just searched on google for "mustache template" and found a bunch!)

I imported the image into Word, and expanded it to the size I wanted:

Then, I cut out the pattern and pinned it to the felt. (As you can see, I trimmed it a little in the middle because it was a bit too wide).

Once the mustache was cut out, I pinned it onto the towel and sewed around the edges. It was a little tricky to keep the line straight, and right up to the edge of the felt but it can be done.

And voila! So easy, and fun. Perfect for a Father's Day gift, or for your bf or hubby.
