Ode to Dad and the Handlebar Moustache

Every since I was a teenager my dad has sported a handlebar moustache. He shaved it when my daughter was about two and she was not happy. She could not talk much but she did manage to wrinkle her little eyebrows and crinkle her nose and say, “Papa, no shave ’stache!”

IMG_20140515_100806Is it just me? Are handlebar moustaches gaining popularity? I’m sure that I notice them more than most people since Dad has one but they seem to be popping up all over the place.

IMG_20140517_035617I’m curious to know and does anyone have an opinion, why this instant craze with handlebar moustaches?

    I can’t explain the craze but mustaches have certainly been trendy. I sell on Etsy and it seems like EVERYONE has had a gimmick with them!

  2. I bought some of that fabric for my moustachioed dad too! I made him pyjama bottoms.

  3. came to look at your pillow tutorial but couldn’t resist this. did you see the mustache quilt i just made? you should make one for him! 🙂
