I'm planning a graffiti installment using crocheted balls. My friend here on Craftster made me a bunch, so I wanted to do something for her. She likes mustaches, and wanted some to hang on her craft wall. This was an interesting challenge for me, as I don't think too much about mustaches, apart from hoping I never get one when I get older. I decided to go for a a trio of different styles, which I would unify with an old school barber-shop kind of theme.
Here's the trio united:

and separate-Handlebar (the pic is smaller than the others, but it's about the same size as the others)

fu manchu:

and pencil, the last one I did; I think it's funny without a face to hang it on.

So I embroidered the mustaches, cut out red vinyl in the shape of the finished piece, cut out light blue fleece in the same size, sewed the three layers, then figured out the design I wanted to frame with, cut that out, then tacked the framing pieces with yellow floss, then hot-glued it onto cardboard, and hot-glued some ribbon for hangin'.
Thanks for looking, I'd love to hear what you think!

I personally find them smashing, darling.  Love the fu manchu one and the handlebar makes me giggle.  The pencil one totally rocks without a face attached!  Cheesy

You did a fantastic job!   Cheesy

These are awesome. I love the way you did the lettering, and it reminds me of Malki!'s Hierarchy of Beards.

Thanks alot for the kind comments, everyone! Thrynity, that Hierarchy of Beards is too dope-I can picture that being re-created as a huge embroidery installation, every beard in an embroidery hoop and all connected somehow. Yeah, I'll get right on that. Cheesy
