Party lights with moustaches? Yup, vote for ’em!

October 25, 2011

Moustache Christmas Lights

This is a muchos speedy post because it’s late, and there’s only a day left to vote. Things have been a tad hectic around here lately, so my tutorial for the Retrotastic Camera Camera Bag is late too. I hope to have that up later today as I know some of you have already received the fabric for your orders of these. Apologies for the delay.

Party Lights String

So the scoop is that the latest Spoonflower contest (for those of you who don’t follow Spoonflower) is for a “Hanging Ornament Design.” I’ve been meaning to sew myself some rainbow Christmas tree lights for a while now – love anything ROYGBIV* – so I designed these Señors called Señor Party Lights with their large moustaches and funny faces, because I always like to have that little twist on things to entertain myself, and you hopefully.  What I like about them is that they’re really good for anything festive, and enviro friendly since they use no electricity. 😀 They would look fun on the Christmas tree but would also be comical decorating the awnings of a deck at a summer Mexican party or if you’re hosting a Movember party – these would be the biz! What do you think? If you like them then pop over to Spoonflower’s contest voting page and give them a vote.

Dress up a bottle of wine

They should be up for sale as of tomorrow I think. Will keep you posted. A swatch size is good for una fiesta poco (a small party) and will make either 2 double sided ornaments, or use your scraps as backing and get 4 lights. A fat quarter will get you una gran fiesta = 14 double sided lights. If you’re feeling super festive then a yard will be un partido muy grande = 56 lights (Thank you Google translate, and apologies to any Spanish speakers if I’m writing mal español.)

Gracias, amigos! Now back to that tutorial with me.

The pics of the lights are of my prototypes so the colours are not accurate. I will post revised pics with accurate colours as soon as my fabric arrives on Thursday.

* ROYGBIV = Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet

    Great idea! I see now they are Mexican and not French 🙂
    Love the patterns and colors!

      They could easily be French if you wanted them to. Just hang them from a bottle of Bordeaux instead of Tequila, or wrap them around a baguette. 🙂 ” Alouette, gentille alouette!”
