A Cow Costume

My little Cow!
This is my son Rains...he is 14 months old....
and he is 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
ribbon
cow bell
pattern

Sure....I could have spend $10 at Wal-mart and bought a cow costume...but what FUN is that....
Nothing beats Handmade!
I just 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 painted dried.
I only used the 2 body pieces, 2 sleeves and 3 hood pieces.
I don't have a sewing machine so I just whipped stitched everything together on our 6 hour road trip to Denver.
Fur is very forgiving and I didn't have to hem or fussed 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!

I could just eat him, he's so cute! Great job, Mom!

My kids are in their late teens and they still brag about how they never had a store bought costume. You're just underscoring your love there.
