Well, since this year the lowest number of teams ever signed up for the Iditarod... (I blame global warming.) I decided to help them out with a little bit of fuzzy P.R.
I made my own dog sled team, complete with harnesses and sled. If I was 4 inches tall, I could go rocketing across the icy, white, quilt batting, the wind whipping through my yarn hair.
I love needle felting in the winter.
The sled is just cardboard, bent carefully and to match the dog sled illustrations I found on the net. Just simply glued together, it was surprisingly effective.
I might make a sled bag too. But not before this Christmas. I am still just this side of all finished up... and I fully intend to actually relax before all the delights of the big day are upon us.
The lead dog has different colored eyes,
just like a husky I knew when I was a kid.
Thanks for all the great feedback on Jake's project too.
We'll definitely have a post here when he opens up shop!
