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.
