  • Step 1

    Start off by washing and ironing your pillow cases, this gives the paint the best chance to stay on the pillows :)

  • Step 2

    After that you need to draw a template. I used a big piece of old card i had lying around and drew a rough shape of half the mustache and perfected it. Your card needs to be as big as or a little smaller than your pillow cases, you can use card, paper, cardboard anything.
    Also drawing only half the mustache saves time and ensures an even mustache

  • Step 3

    So when you have your mustache template ready either pin it down to your first pillow case or hold it down while you draw around it.

    Now your ready to paint!
    Personally i used Dylon fabric paint because i feel it gives the best outcome, it remains soft after drying and gives a great look. Haven't yet found a better one. Also remember when painting to put something in between the fabric to keep it from leaking to the the back.

    Also i used around 3/4 pots of dylon fabric paint, but it depends on size and thickness of your mustache :)

    Now flip the template and draw the template on the other pillow case and then paint. Its that simple!

    Also i had my mustache meeting at the opening on the pillow ends. if that makes sense, but you can do it either way.

    All thats left is it left to dry :) keep something in between the pillow cases while they dry to make sure theres no leaking :)

    While waiting for them to dry i messed about as seen.

    After dry, wash iron to fix the colour and put pillows in! Yay!!!

  • Step 7

    Now be awesome with your pillows and try not to explode from too much amazingness!
