I forgot to post this earlier. I saw the idea for this mummy on Taste of Home. It was so cute I had to make it! It is really simple. Just get a couple of pre-packaged cheese logs and cut them into your body shapes. Then mix 8 oz of cream cheese with 2 TBS of milk. Put into a frosting bag with a basket weave tip and pipe bandages onto the mummy. Use a couple cloves, peppercorns, or other small black items for eyes, and something red like bell pepper for a mouth.
For some authenticity I dyed a little bit of the cream cheese gray and spread it up one side of the bag. That gave the edges of the bandages a grayish tinge and gave it more depth. Thanks to my sister Sharon for that idea!
By the way, I made my apron for my Halloween costume (Eric and I were John and Cindy McCain, so I went for the perfect trophy wife look This was my first project on the sewing machine my wonderful grandmother gave to me. For more of our Halloween night at my parents look here.
