My friend’s son recently celebrated his first birthday. I wasn’t able to attend but I wanted to make her some mustache decor and a little shirt for him to wear. She had picked out the colors blue, green, gray, and black so I tried to stick very close to her color scheme.
I started in the Silhouette Studio and purchased the 3 Mustache design. I also added little holes so I didn’t have to punch them later.
Using baker’s twine I strung the mustaches together. This project took all of 5 minutes! I ended up making two small banners and added a couple of mustaches on paper straws.
I knew I wanted to make him something to wear so using that same mustache graphic and HTV (heat transfer vinyl) I made him a shirt. For those interested that is Modern Sans font (my favorite). I weeded the vinyl with my hook tool and placed the words how I wanted them. Weeding is just a fancy name for getting rid of the vinyl you do not want or that is not part of your overall design.
Using my iron I pressed and pressed the vinyl on the shirt.
Once the vinyl can be separated from the clear transfer plastic I press again with a thin cloth over the design. I do this a couple of times with cool time in between.
I also worked in Illustrator and made her up a quick printable that matches the shirt.

I am also including the mustaches I drew in Illustrator. For those of you with out a Silhouette you can download these and make your own banners or mustache straws.
