I finally finished it! This is my pillow of Edgar Allan Poe! I started this project a few weeks ago and I only worked on it on the weekends, but decided I really wanted to finish it and last night I did! This is the first time I ever made a pillow, it is also my first time ever making a picture crochet. I am so happy with how it turned out! It is a little wobbled at some points but considering it was my first time doing this kind of project it could have turned out way worst. And it didn't because it looks amazing! I made the pattern all myself and Ah! I love it so much. It is so cuddly and now my Edgar fan girl dreams come true!

Wow you did a great job! A friend of mine recently did a painting of Poe and I find it incredible that both of you captured him so well!

@DesirousDreamer I grew up on the writings of Poe so he's always been a favorite of mine. It's nice to know he's alive and well and living at your place now!

@CRK109 Haha I fell in love with him when I was very young! I feel a connection because of all the ridicule he got for being different. I love him and always will

@DesirousDreamer Yes, he looks too hot to sleep on. Someone once gave me a Jane Russell pillow, but it was too lumpy to lie on.
