Is that a Mustache or are you just happy to see me?

As I'm sure you are aware, mustaches are the cool thing lately. 

So for Christmas, I decided to make some mustache pillows for my boys. I could see the idea in my head. I had a plan. 

When I went to the quilt store to buy the brown minky for the front, I think she was a little shocked at how much I was buying. She must have thought I meant a square pillow. But nooooo.... This is what I was making. 



They were difficult to wrap and put under the tree. But my boys absolutely love them!! 

Here is the backing fabric. I really wanted to use a fabric with actual mustaches... but I had to settle for foxes with mustaches, bow ties and sweaters. I'm glad I did because as you all know.. Foxes are pretty cool right now too. 



I drew half the 'stash on tissue paper and then cut it on the fold so each side would be even. This is one of those rare moments when it actually turned out better than it looked in my mind. Usually it's just the opposite. 


How about you? What kind of homemade gifts did you make this year?

What great STASHES you made for the boys....
I also made a pillow for my GGD for Christmas but just a boring big square one with "Thomas" on.

Love those cushions, my boys would love those. They tried to grow their first Movember tashes this year, not a resounding success, lol, but I'm sure they'll grow into it
