Instead of making progress on a new tutorial, I let myself get sidetracked by Harry Potter… a Harry Potter themed swap that is! Partners were announced Friday evening which gave me plenty of time to come up with ideas. One item that really stood out that she wanted was a pillow similar to this, but in Ravenclaw colors (blue and bronze) and with Luna Lovegood’s Spectrespecs. The photo on the right is what I came up with.
What surprised me about this particular project is how time consuming it really was. Between sewing fleece strips together and appliqueing the Spectrespecs to the pillow front, this became a ‘long afternoon’ design – I’m just thankful that I’m happy with the end result!
