Lip/Moustache Pattern - get it here or draw your own
E6000 / strong glue
Felt backing / any backing of choice
Needle and thread
Print the stencil on freezer paper. Cut the excess and iron it down onto the backside of the leather/fabric. Cut around the outside of the stencil line. Re-use the stencil to cut around a second pattern on your backing of choice. I highly recommend using good quality felt, but I'm too cheap for that so I used craft-store stiff felt. It's not that bad, it just gets really dirty-looking after awhile.
You'll have two identical shapes now. By this time I was laughing to myself and my mother was like 'What the hell are you on?'. Anyway, match them up to see if you need to trim the other to make an exact fit.
Next, sew on your snap fasteners - one on the left side of the front part of your leather, and the other on the left side of your felt. The side without the fasteners sticking out will be what you'll glue together. Anyway, make sure to attach the fasteners before gluing the pieces together.
You might want to paint the leather as well (if you're poor like me who doesn't have leather/pleather in lots of colors). Actually, I just wanted to show you how luscious these lips looked when I was painting them with nail polish :))
Anyway, stick the leather and the backing together, wait for it to dry and you are done! Make just one, or make different colors. Stack them up, Or use them as cuffs.
It doesn't really look like a moustache or a lip when you're wearing it - if anything, it looks like a dainty peter pan collar for your wrist. Nevertheless, I think it's still a fun and quirky accessory. Although I might do something a bit more extreme. Now tell me, would you wear something like this? Or is it too out there? Converse with me friends, down at the comments box there! Now I must go prepare for a party. I hope you enjoy your weekend!
