Step 2: Sew the Cushion Front

Lay out your fabric squares to make the face of the creeper. I used the very dark green squares as part of the eyes/mouth are rather than using all black.  If you have a digital camera take a picture of your layout to help you keep the squares in your chosen pattern as you sew them together.

Sew the squares into rows using a 1/4" seam and press the seams on each row in opposite directions (eg row 1 to the right, row 2 to the left etc). Sew the rows together to make the creeper face which should end up at 16 1/2" square.  Press all the long seams carefully, ensuring you don't end up with fabric tucks at the fold.

Measure across the centre of your creeper's face (should be 16 1/2", but mine was 16 3/8")and cut 2 strips of black fabric this long by 3 1/2" wide. Sew these to the top and bottom of the face and press the seam towards the border.  Now measure across the "height" of your face (should be 22 1/2") including the borders and cut 2 strips of black fabric this long by 3 1/2" wide. Sew these to the sides of the face and again press the seam towards the border.  If your borders are longer than the central measurement across your centre they will end up being wavy.  This would not be a big problem on a small project like this, but on a larger quilt or a wall hanging it would be quite noticeable.
Love it. My 8 year old is having a birthday soon and I am a quilter. Thank you!
Thanks so much! My bro is a serious crafter and now I know the perfect thing to make him for his birthday! :)
aren't the eyes 2x2s?
If you look closely at the screen shot the creeper's eyes are actually 1 black &amp; 3 dark green, but I think my greens for the eyes and mouth were not quite dark enough, so all black squares there would have looked better.
i use a texture pack where the green is one green and the black is just straight black so the eyes im used to are 2x2 like these creepers: https://www.google.com/search?q=creeper&amp;hl=en&amp;tbo=u&amp;tbm=isch&amp;source=univ&amp;sa=X&amp;ei=amrBULilIYf1igK6kIDwCw&amp;ved=0CG8QsAQ&amp;biw=1920&amp;bih=979
