Sharing an edited post from last year:
My little Cow!
This is my son Rains last year at 14 months old....
and he was the cutest cow I've ever seen~!
I had soooo much FUN making this little costume for him...
Here's what I used:
1 1/2 yards of white fur
black fabric paint
pink and white felt
Sure....I could have spend $10 at Wal-mart and bought a cow costume...
but what FUN is that....
Nothing beats the fun of Handmade!
I couldn't find any cow print that I liked...so I painted my own!
Plus it's cold here and I needed fabric that would keep my boy warm
on his search for CANDY!
I cut out my pattern pieces after the paint dried.
I only used the lamb pattern pieces.
I don't have a sewing machine so I just whip stitched everything together.
Fur is very forgiving and I didn't have to hem or fuss to much with the little details of the pattern.
Add a cow bell on some ribbon......
2 white felt horns and a braided yarn cow tail....and you get the cutest COW ever!
Check out all the places I party!
