I think the cows would look MUCH better with a bell around their necks!!

The middle cow is the plastic animal I used for a model.

Enjoy!

I am glad you all like it...

Thank you!

I will admit...this was a tough pattern for me to come up with.

I am still not happy how the head/body go together.

I was trying to make a neck to seperate them a bit...but then it started looking like a giraffe!

I think if I tie a bell around its neck...it will look better.

 

What is next??? not sure yet. I am going to look through my daughters toys! :lol

Kristie-

 

You are absolutely amazing! It is so adorable! My son will treasure these when he's old enough to play with them. His room is a barn yard theme so I'm trying to fill it with horses, cows, pigs and other farm yard stuffed animals. This one will be the perfect addition

 

Thank you so much for sharing with us!
