The Cow in the Room


Might as well be an elephant. Animal prints in the home (or my closet) are not something I’ve considered since the Express leopard tube-top dress circa 2001. (And even that was on clearance!) Alas, I had a hunkering for heifer print, and it literally fell in front of me at the fabric store. I couldn’t resist. Somehow there's really nothing slutty to me about cow print (always my fear of leopard and zebra), however I am concerned about it being somewhat tacky.

So, now what do I do with a yard of heifer cow print? I could make a cuddly pillow, upholster something with it, make a quilt? Hide it away and forget I purchased it for $12.99? Thoughts??

Note: The cow isn’t totally random. My mom grew up on a farm that primarily raises cows, Holsteins and Heifers, I think. So, it’s a little bit o’ spunky heritage. An ode to the family farm and it makes me smile.
