Movember is coming to an end………….has your other halves tash not been the success he’d hoped for?? Well you still have time to make him this impressive beast.

By the way it also provides no end of amusement with quotes like:

I “moustache” you a question.

I “moustache” to the shops.

Sad, I know but guaranteed to drive your other half crazy hehehehe.

AND it’s super easy.

You will need:

  • 1/2 meter of fabric- Try not to go for anything stretchy
  • Stuffing (an old pillow is great)
  • Thread
  • Scissors
  • Template. You can down load it here Moustache Template

Step 1

Cut out the template and place on the fabric- Note that the straight edge is placed on the fold. This means that the fabric is folded in half and the template is place directly onto it and then the cut out. See pics.

Cut out 2 Note that the fabric folds out so don’t cut the fabric along the fold

Step 2

Place pieces together with the right side of the fabric facing each other. Pin and sew using a 1 cm seam allowance. REMEMBER leave a 10cm gap at the bottom so that you can turn inside out.

NOTE: This is a very curvy project so go slowly so that you can follow them.

STEP 3

I forgot to take a pic of this in my excitement but at this point you need to snip the seam allowance to allow the tash to curve. I have a pic from another project to give you the idea x

NOT the tash LOL but you can see how you need to carefully cut out the triangles x


STEP 4

Turn the tash to the right side and stuff. Once full neatly stitch up the gap and hey presto, your fanTASHtic tash is ready.

Here are a few pics of finished projects. You can always add some sand (in plastic freezer bags) and use as a doorstop. or why not enlarge for a draft excluder!!
