Little Brown Cow

The Cow

The friendly cow all red and white,
I love with all my heart:
She gives me cream with all her might,
To eat with apple-tart.

She wanders lowing here and there,
And yet she cannot stray,
All in the pleasant open air,
The pleasant light of day;

And blown by all the winds that pass
And wet with all the showers,
She walks among the meadow grass
And eats the meadow flowers.
--Robert Louis Stevenson

This five-inch cow was made using the pattern from this book.  I enlarged the pattern so my big fingers could sew it more easily.  Anyway, my daughter is absolutely ga-ga over this little cow.  That's why the legs look kinda funny.  I highly recommend the book, even though it is in Japanese, it is very easy to follow.
