Unless you've been living under a boulder, you'll know that mustaches are all the rage right now
Everything that could possibly have a mustache on it does
Even finger tattoos
So when one of my coworkers baby shower came along and she was having a boy I knew I had to make some mustache pacifiers
Actually, pacifier sounds so technical
It was always a binky in our family
I had a hot pink binky that I loved so much that even after I was over sucking on it I made my mom keep it for a few years just so I could look at it every once and a while
I've been a sentimental hoarder since the age of 3
Here's a picture of me and my binky with my childhood neighbor Cory
Hopefully The Boy doesn't see this
Ya know... I wouldn't want him getting all jealous and stuff
I mean look at the awesome sweater on that kid!
And those pants.....oh my!
No wonder I was hanging onto him
And here's another of me playing with my sister Kinsey, binky of course in mouth
Here's a funny fact for ya......
See how the pillow is in front of the VCR?
Well, that's because no matter where I was in the room I would roll myself over to the VCR and stick my toes inside
So my mom had to cover it
(And yes, that's The Little Mermaid playing on the TV)
Anyways.....here's how I made the binkies
Got some simple pacifiers
Then I doodled some mustache templates
I had to keep making cuts to make sure they would fit properly
Then cut them out of stiff felt
I've seen that some people make them out of craft foam, but I personally prefer the felt
The foam can sometimes show off grease marks from your fingers and since these will be handled alot there's a good chance that would happen
The felt hides alot more imperfections
Then I just hot glued them on
These were a huge hit at the shower and they are super quick and easy to make
