So I’m almost done with this cow (need to make some horns)… The pattern has an upside down strawberry as a horn (2nd picture), regular old pointy horns, or a Hershey kiss (neither of which I’ve made yet). I was thinking for pointy horns I could do the snout color?, and the kiss horns I have a grey with a sliver metallic tinsel (pic 3).
I’m thinking it needs an accessory though. I thought I could ask here because no one in my household is any help. So what do you think? Or will one of the horn options be enough?
I vote regular horns out of the snout color
A set of regular horns made from the cream color, and maybe a small basket of strawberries as an accessory.
Looks so cute! I think the horns in the accent color would look stellar!
Could definitely add the kisses to the basket, too
How about a milk pail in that sparkly color with some strawberries in it.
Call the cow Strawberries and Cream!
Oh that’s a good idea!
Yeah the original patterns are a pink and red strawberry milkshake cow, a brown chocolate kiss cow, and a black and white run of the mill dairy cow
That’s a really cute idea!
I feel you lol!!!
What about a tutu skirt and a crop top lol
I love the strawberry, but will vote for regular horns and the basket idea i liked too!
This is very cute!!! I agree about adding something. When I was making those types of toys I would often add a crochet or ribbon bow around the neck and sometimes attach a charm to the bow. Since this is a cow maybe you could add a bell?
Snout colored horns is my vote! Think the strawberry basket or milk pail would be a fantastic way to incorporate them, but also the bow/bell idea (could do the bow in pink with a strawberry charm)! Everyone’s so creative; I’m super curious about the hershey kiss horns
Thanks for all of your input! I’ll be making the kiss even if I don’t use it, as it’s a pattern test rn.
One thing that did come to mind was a crocheted string of pearls. The other thought was a flower for the head, maybe a daisy or something. I just wasn’t sure if that might be too much. I thought to put it in the original post, but I didn’t want to skew anyone’s creative thinking. Thank you for your advice!
Lol they’re just no help. They look at me with blank faces and I can tell they’d just rather be somewhere else. “Stop asking me”, I imagine this is running through their heads.
I didn’t really want to make any clothes, I had thought about something simple for the pig, but not this cow. Thanks for the suggestion though.
maybe just one of the horn options? id say maybe between the hershey kiss or regular horns to go with the colours you used for the main body
Cute!! I like the strawberry on its own but maybe prefer regular horns. He could have a basket of strawberries or something?
Maybe some nostrils?
But I think it looks great!
Whered you get the pattern?!
I like the idea of the cream horns.
I also like @anoswaldoddity milk pail idea.
you could also make a collar where the strawberry replaces a bell and put the kisses in the pail.
Whatever you do, this is gonna be amazing
She actually had some nostrils! They’re just very light in color.
