October Itty Bitty

This is my favorite Itty Bitty of the bunch, October! I’ve been making all of them again from wool, however, the original is so cute with the Quilter’s Candy Basics and Osnaburg, I just don’t want to remake it. I love how the Osnaburg tears and the color looks so much like bandages. SO perfect! And, this Itty Bitty is quick because you can quilt as you go (QAYG)! It’s all done in one fell swoop!

Lay and center a 7″ square piece of cotton batting on the background.

Lay a 7″ square background fabric on top of the batting.

Tear strips from the bandage fabric in different widths. Tearing makes it look more like a bandage. Stitch along the raw edges of each strip.

Lay down the next torn bandage strip and stitch along the edges. Keep in mind where you are going to put the googly eyes.

Keep layering the strips and stitching them down. At this point you’ll want to place and stitch down the eyes. Continue adding strips after the eyes until you have a mummy you love!!! BAM! You’re done! Trim down to 6-1/2″ square and bind. Don’t forget your hanging sleeve! Oh, he’s SO darling!!!

    This is my favorite too! I bought the Wire Flip Card Holder to hang all twelve – I had better get started!

      You bet Barb! I love how little time it takes to make them, and how little space they take up in the home. They are so fun and you can add or subtract design-wise any way you want!
