Step 5: Bind the Cushion Cover

Measure all around the outside of the cushion - the perimeter should measure about 90".  You need to prepare length of binding this long, plus an extra 5" for each corner, i.e. about 110" !

Cut three 2 1/2" strips across the width of your binding fabric and sew them together on the diagonal as shown, then trim off the excess fabric and press in half lengthwise with the raw edges matching.  Apply the binding as shown in step 9 of my Charm Pack Baby Quilt instructable .

Once you have applied the binding you can slip your pillow form / cushion inner into the cover and lean against your creeper!
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
