Crochet Mustache Bracelet

A few days ago I showed you the tiny owl pendant I made for my niece's 14th birthday. As the second part of her present, I whipped up this super fast mustache bracelet. Seriously. This took maybe 15 minutes. And I think that's an exaggeration. 
I have to admit, I don't really understand the whole mustache thing. But apparently they're in. If you have a teenager who's into mustaches - here's the free pattern for you!

(This statement pretty much only applies to the women in my life. I don't often make things for guys - I find guys too hard to make things for). 

So, my niece is turning 14. I'm not sure how that has happened - because I think it was just yesterday that I was dating my now husband and met this adorable little redheaded three year old fireball. But apparently it was like 11 years ago and time is moving too fast and I might be getting old. Moving on.

I hear that kids these days are into owls. And mustaches. (at least this kid is). (am I still allowed to call her a kid at 14?). So I decided to try something new and design an owl necklace. And I'm really happy with how it turned out! (Hopefully she will be too...)
