Have I mentioned how much I love these??

    I finished my Almost Harry, Almost Hermione and Almost Ron pillows last night...just minutes before it was time to wrap them and give them to my daughter for her 11th birthday celebration.  She loved them.  And I love them, too...I'm so excited with how well they turned out.  It was SO much better than Id' even hoped!

 Almost Harry ...oh!  I learned a new embroidery stitch to do his glasses and scar!!  It's called the Whipped Running Stitch (it's the second one from the top on that link).  It was really fast and easy, and it looks so nice and smooth.  I'll never use any other line stitch again, lol.

 Almost Hermione

And the last one, my sweet ginger Almost Ron. 

I added a lining of Bella Snow to all of them, and a hidden zipper in the bottoms...see?

And finally, one last peek at what I'm doing for the rest of the day...

And off I go!!  I'll see you when it's quilted ;)
