As a little chap our son loved cows. Well, he still loves cows, but probably loves Batman and Spiderman a bit more now. So, his third Birthday party was cow themed.


Our son doesn’t get much (anything actually) made for him. Mainly because I am scared to stitch trousers and shorts. And partly because I know that I’ll take time to make them and then he will rip holes in their knees. So I buy them from H&M instead and save myself time and money.

But I did make him some t-shirts for his Birthday. Well, I didn’t make the t-shirts. I appliqued them instead. Using pictures from ‘Moo Cow’ by Nick Sharratt and ‘Hamish the Highland Cow’ by Natalie Russell, felt, fake fur, interfacing and a lot of hand stitching time I made him a pair of cow tops.

Almost as much as the cake. Mmmmmmmmmm (well someone had to eat the rest of the pack of Minstrels).
