I decided that everyone needs a disguise for those special days when you just don't want to face the world. So, I obsessed on making a yarn beard to help me out.
As usual, the project grew to include various accessories associated with beards:

bread crumbs (made of painted latex foam from an old pillow)
snot (made of dried up hot glue)
grey hairs
and hidden inside, a cockroach

You can use your imagination and add a multitude of other things...like sunglasses...a kerchief...a pipe...



And see, it works!  Guess who!? Cheesy



I gave it away to a friend who is crazier than I am, so if you don't recognize someone who seems familiar, remember, it might just be the beard... Cheesy

Oh--and do not wear this to a bank...I will not be responsible for anything that might happen if you do (disclaimer suggested by my attorney...)...Wink

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Pretty simple but time intensive!

I drew out a basic pattern for the beard with flleece and then cut yards and yards of suede yarn.  I sort of hooked it into the fleece with a crochet hook and tied each one of those suckers!  I did the same thing with the mustache only I interfaced it first...

Sewed the mustache onto the beard, covered up the back with more fleece--attached elastic!

For the accessories, I sewed snaps behind the beard and mustache and then onto the end of the accessories...I used fishing line to string the snot and the bread crumbs...

BUTTTTTTTTT...if I had to make another one, I would lay the yarn over the fleece in loops and sew through it, row by row, starting at the bottom...the thing took way too much time, but I was obsessed! Cheesy

My family came at Thanksgiving and everyone got a picture of themselves wearing the beard...whodda thunk that such a goofy thing could make us laugh so much!!!

The entire thing is washable because you know that it has to be shared by all that see it...and a grungy beard is not a good thing! Cheesy

I hope the family that got it has fun with it! Cheesy
