All year round challenge: The C from Cow

It's not even february but I am already half way for this month!
After the A and B I wanted for the C a real wicked one! I could have picked the C from Cat but I didn't want to make one, because it's crocheted so often already.
So I wanted something else, now it was between a crab and a cow. For a crab I wanted a hat but my last challenge was already a hat, so I chose the cow.
I thought of slippers, a doorstop or a bag and then my weird brain interfered, it must be a bag with udders, and so I started with a lot of fun!

And here is the C from Cow! 



Do you love this bag as much as I do, well it's your lucky day, this pattern is FREE!

Sew the udders in a square between the 4th and 6th round from middle. 

Do you see the crab stitch, this is an perfect edge for this bag! 


String

Cut a string of each color that fits two times around the bag, fold them in the middle and make a braid with three colors. 

Tassels

There are many ways to make tassels, but we are scouts made a great tutorial >>>click<<<

Handle

Okay, for this one I made an extra large kumihimo disc. 
This disc is 9 inches and the middle is 2-3 inches. See tutorial here (it's Dutch but the pictures are really easy to follow). 

Now cut the size you want for the handle x 2 because you have to fold it in half. So i wanted 13 inches, so I cut 10 string of 26 inches of black and 5 strings pink and 5 strings white. 

Spots

So here you can go nuts! Cut the spots in the size or form you want out of felt and sew them on the white part of the bag. 


And there you have it, an amazing cow udder bag!! 


Oh and my little model also wanted to strike a pose with her cow hat and the bag (this one likes been photographed)!!


And here she is the cow, you see?
