Toy Cow

Inspired by the cows who live in the field behind my house, this was by far one my most ambitious leather project to date. Through it I learnt new skills such as butt-stitching and three-dimensional stitching. It took about two weeks worth of evenings.

It was also my first time using a pattern. Knowing when to trust the pattern and when to go off-piste was difficult, for instance I changed the feet and am very happy, but less happy with my version of the tail.

All-in-all it was a very fun project and, now I have the pattern I may well repeat it (once my hands recover).
