Cowletta Moolove Funmigurumi

Best Blog Tips






With Cowletta, we will start a new family of Funmigurumi, the Moolove family, straight out of a green and pretty prairie!
The idea for this funmigurumi came from a personal request from a special crocheter, but it just stirred up things on the farm, so Cowletta wound up having a sister, her name is Milketta. I hear some mooing coming from the pasture so I don’t know if there are more little cows out there or may even a couple of bulls. . . Meantime, enjoy Cowletta until we find out!
