Crafting Time:
3-5 Hours
Skill Level:



  • Design Master® Spray, Glossy Wood Tone (1 can)
  • 1/2 yd natural duck cloth
  • 1-3/4 yd black ball fringe
  • 1 spool cream thread
  • Polyester stuffing or pillow form
  • 1/2 yd muslin
  • Double stick fuse-able web
  • Large black pom poms (4)
  • Scissors
  • Iron


  1. Cut two 17" squares from the duck cloth.
  2. Tear muslin into 1-1/4" strips. Spraying from 15"-18", mist the strips with Glossy Wood Tone. Irregularly spray some areas heavier than others.
  3. When dry, iron the muslin strips.
  4. To make an iron-on transfer of the mummy face, lay strips of the muslin in a slightly irregular fashion on a 15" square of fuse-able web. Keeping in mind a rough shape of the head, cut a short strip for the top of the head and adhere/iron to webbing. Cut a second strip and place it next to the first slightly overlapping the edges. Fuse in place. Cut the next strip slightly longer and fuse in place next to the previous strip with one side crossing over the previous one. Repeat this process, alternating placement of strips, to create the full head. In areas where fabric overlaps place a small piece of webbing and fuse loose strip down.
  5. Sketch the outline of a mummy head on fabric and cut out the shape.
  6. To make eyes, glue two pom poms together on fabric for each eye. Fuse a strip of webbing to two strips of muslin. Place strips over eyes in an overlapping fashion and fuse into place. Trim length of strips.
  7. Place mummy transfer on one piece of pillow fabric and fuse into place.
  8. Allowing for a 1/2" seam allowance, sew the ball fringe to the right side of the pillow square. Place right sides of fabric together and stitch, leaving an 8" opening. Turn fabric inside out and stuff pillow. Stitch opening closed.
