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!!!
