DIY Yarn Beard!

There really isn't a whole lot more to say...except that:

This weekend, I made a beard--out of yarn--for Luca...

I don't know where this idea came from and 
I am still not exactly sure why I made it...

but I do know HOW I made it

 and the directions are below...

so you can make your very own.

: )

I took a sheet of brown felt and holding it up to his face, 
I traced Luca's jaw line from ear to ear, around his chin.  

Then from ear to ear, under his nose--cutting out a hole for his mouth; 
(dipping just a bit from ear to nose instead of doing a straight line..)

I drew three lines below the hole for the mouth from ear to ear.

  Starting at the bottom and working my way up, 
I slowly machine-sewed loops of yarn close together on each line.
I snipped the loops.  
Then, I sewed loops of yarn on the top to make the mustache.

I sewed a piece of elastic on either side (by ears) to keep it on.

And then I gave it a trim...

very important...

and the fun part!

He kind of looks like Abe Lincoln, don't you think??
