It's Tutorial Tuesday! Make a recycled wool mustache!

Here's a fun and quick little project! You will need some black felted wool (I used merino), and something to hold the mustache up with. I found this egg dipper, from an Easter egg decorating kit, floating at the bottom of my junk drawer. It worked out perfectly, once I bent the end to the shape of the mustache, but you can use a chop stick, pencil, etc. as well.

Now, find a template for a mustache you like. I used this template, but if you search Google images for "mustache template", you will have hundreds to choose from.

Now cut out 2 mustache pieces, using your template.

Sew the 2 pieces together with a simple straight stitch, leaving a 1/2 inch opening on the bottom side.

Now just slide the egg holder (or pencil, chop stick, etc.) in, and you are done. I chose to add a little glue to the end I was sliding in, to reinforce it a little, but it wasn't necessary.

Now you're done! Go have fun!
