Hi everyone!!

This is my first post! I finally finished this tapestry crochet pillow tonight. It's for my girlfriend for our anniversary. Shes a total HP nerd and we both adore the idea of Hogwarts so I decided I would create this gem for her and I wanted to share it all with you! I'm turning the graph into a GIGANTIC pixel-blanket, which will take me the next ba-zillion years, but if I ever finish it, I will share it will all of you! Also, please excuse my AWFUL pictures as I am currently without a camera other than my webcam...



Here is just the front panel before it was put together



The front ALL finished!



The back (with me being Vanna White, of course!)

Update: After a few days of consideration I decided I could never finish the HUGE blanket I was planning, so I edited it down to a more simplistic representation of the crest and will be sure to share when its done!

Fantastic! So jealous of your skills, I've only made tapestry crochet in 2 colors, never tried anymore than that.

Did you create the graph for the pillow yourself? Or do you have graph making software?

Thanks everyone!

It took me about 3 weeks to do the whole thing and put it together because I came back to school in the middle of finishing and  I had less time to spend on it. I created the graph from a cross stitch graph I found online. I had to do a TON of altering, especially around the top and the H and it had animals in the squares of house colors which I took out. I did use some free graph software to alter it down for the blanket or else it would've been even bigger than it already is.
